Women are striving to get what they want and these female finance influencers in India are helping get financial literacy. Meet them here!
Finance has traditionally been a male-dominated field. Even today, when it comes to financing and people who work in finance- everyone assumes it’s a man on the other end. In fact, until now- there were only male finance influencers in the game.
Unfortunately, people don’t expect women to be good at financing as they think finance is a man’s job- something a spouse does.
But, in this time and age, women are striving to get what they want, financial literacy is still lacking. The worst part is that there weren’t any good financial influencers until these amazing women came to our rescue!
Here, we have these amazing female finance influencers in India that defied all the odds and chose finance and are thriving. They inspire young women to get more into finance.
So, let’s get into it!

Ranade has level-wise courses that talk about the stock market, mutual funds, personal finance management, fundamental and technical analysis, etc.

Shows like Indian Matchmaking only further the argument that women must adhere to social norms without being allowed to follow their hearts.
When Netflix announced that Indian Matchmaking (2020-present) would be renewed for a second season, many of us hoped for the makers of the show to take all the criticism they faced seriously. That is definitely not the case because the show still continues to celebrate regressive patriarchal values.
Here are a few of the gendered notions that the show propagates.
A mediocre man can give himself a 9.5/10 and call himself ‘the world’s most eligible bachelor’, but an independent and successful woman must be happy with receiving just 60-70% of what she feels she deserves.
At one point, she confesses to her mother that the beatings are no longer physical, they have started affecting her mentally as well, and she wants to break free of this cycle of abuse.
Trigger Warning: This deals with domestic violence and may be triggering for survivors.
I recently watched Darlings on Netflix. It’s a quirky, dark satire featuring the dynamite duo of Alia Bhatt and Shefali Shah. The movie depicts domestic violence and the psychology of abuse.
Even though the subject matter is dark, there are light moments and humour, which make it immensely watchable. It stands out for its powerhouse performances and unique storyline.
