Happy March and welcome to Women's History Month.
Looking back through women's history, so many women have fought for the rights of women today in the USA.
There is quite a long history of women not allowed to own property, work outside the home, advance in their career, or even have a bank account or credit card.
In my own life, I've been able to do it all; however, there were bumps in the road along the way.
For example, although I worked, had a good career, had bank accounts, and a credit card, when I got divorced, I found out the credit card we used as a couple was in my ex-husband’s name. According to the bank, I was only allowed to use it. After over 12 years, none of the credit history we developed together was under my name! I was furious!!
As a single mom, I was starting over in ways I didn't even know or understand at the time. I was thankfully able to buy a house on my own with my new job and new salary. Navigating the sale is another story, for another time.
