Labels like ‘gold digger’, ‘shopaholic’, and ‘trophy wife’ signal to girls and women that they’re incompetent with money. These sexist labels are still in many dictionaries today.
Dictionary.com defines a gold digger as “Informal. a woman who associates with or marries a man chiefly for material gain.”
When even the simple words we use suggest to girls that they are bad with money, it undermines their financial confidence.
So, we're going to change these terms that permeate our language and persistently hold women back from financial empowerment. Let’s urge every dictionary to remove gendered language from the definitions of these harmful terms.
