In October 2009, the International Museum of Women will launch a new exhibition on the theme of women and money (title tbd). The exhibition will address issues encompassing two prominent cross-currents affecting women around the world today.
On the one hand, women are the majority of the world's poor and exploited. On the other hand, women form an increasing percentage of the world's entrepreneurs, business leaders, shoppers and philanthropists.
The exhibition will illuminate the range of ways that women interact with money -- as earners, consumers, caretakers and decision makers in households, board rooms, halls of government and international financial institutions.
For a sneak preview of the type of thought-provoking conversations the exhibition will present, listen to I.M.O.W.'s podcast with longtime economic justice advocate Meizhu Lui, who explains how the global economic crisis is impacting women in the United States - and what women are doing about it.
