After her husband David set off a tweetstorm about the disparity in their approved credit limits for the new AppleCard, managed by Goldman Sachs, Jamie chimed in with her side of the story. And no one could have said it better.
It matters for the woman struggling to start a business in a world that still seems to think women can’t be as successful or creditworthy as men. It matters to the wife trying to get out of an abusive relationship. It matters to minorities harmed by institutional biases. It matters to so many. And so it matters to me.

The problems are compounded by lack of women in senior management in the finance industry. Just 20% of finance executives globally are women, up from 16% in 2016, the report said.

With statistical discrimination, you have certain beliefs about men versus women and what they can do, and given those beliefs, you choose the person who you think is the best person to hire. You are simply acting in a way that you think will maximize your profits …. Blair here – in other words, they discriminate against women!
Elisabetta Basilico, PhD, CFA for Alpha Architect
YES, female-led startups experience significantly more difficulty garnering interest and raising capital from male investors compared to observably similar male-led startups. In particular, women are less successful with male investors, even controlling for a battery of startup/founder characteristics.

Marion Asnes started a beautiful trend (or at least included me in to a beautiful trend) of thanking other women on Twitter. I was at a loss to pick a Top 10 list, and so many women were being repeated. So my contribution is sharing this amazing thread with you here. Please connect with and follow these amazing women.
Thank 10 women and keep it going. TY @ConstanceHunter Srsly, only 10?@LaraCrigger @ARiquier @katiejgray @AnnieGaus @AnnieDuke @alash929 @ebasilico @TommiJohnsen @BlairHduQuesnay @scarletfu @jchatterleyCNN@CarolineHydeTV (for being so great w/ my kid in hair & makeup) https://t.co/ERKHaxTWKL
