Financial Feminist Friday - Whitch of Wall Street

This hashtagFinancialFeministFriday, we’re celebrating a turn-of-the-20th-century financial savant, Hetty Green. After inheriting a cool $6.5 million following her father’s death in 1864, Hetty put her money in railroads,
real estate, and Civil War bonds. By the time of her own death in 1916, her investments had grown to $100 million ($2.3 billion today), making her the richest woman — and one of the richest people — in the country. Daaamn.

Hetty also preached what she practiced, and encouraged young women to take control of their financial futures by educating themselves, managing their own money, and investing. “I am able to manage my affairs better than any man could manage them, and what man has done, women do. It is the duty of every woman, I believe, to learn to take care of her own business affairs.” This attitude earned her the title “The Witch of Wall Street,” a testament to the negativity facing any woman who dared infiltrate the Wall Street boys’ club. Thank you, Hetty, for your investment in both the market and the financial successes of other women.
