I'm working on a book proposal that will explore how women's finances are impacted by their health and how these impacts may stem from sexism in medicine. It will look at a wide range of conditions that are under-funded, under-diagnosed and under-researched in women and will investigate how this affects financial independence throughout female lives, including education, careers and medical debt.

There is no guarantee that it will be published at this stage, but I want to do the topic justice by including as many women's stories as possible. All experiences are welcome, no matter how big or small. And feel free to share this with others who may have a story to tell.
