W&I FAQ

Welcome to the frequently asked questions on the Women and Investing Board! While we believe investing is not gender-specific, this forum is a place Fools can discuss the unique financial issues women sometimes face (which can include widowhood, divorce, retirement, managing money, dealing with spouses and children, learning about investing, and anything else you can think of), and also have a little Foolish fun. Feel free to post questions, share your successes and your mistakes, and offer advice and experiences.
