PS: I tried following this up in the last year, but my leads for potential new interviews
dried up - https://twitter.com/thegirltrader_  She has actually left Twitter altogether!
Shame, because she had an active trading account and had a lot of ideas.

If you know any woman in trading/finance that you would like to see featured, please
get in touch and I will send an interview invite.

Thanks.

The same few names appear in lots of these articles, e.g. Kathy Lien, Linda Bradford Raschke, Sallie Krawcheck, Lauren Simmons, etc.

This article also has some social media spaces listed, where there may be more contemporary voices, but

I cannot vouch for their quality...

Linda Bradford Raschke has done very well for herself. Pulls no punches about her views on trading and traders either.

Hey @sebking1986  thanks for commenting.

She has, and she appeared in a few documentaries as well as in the Market Wizards book (Jack Schwager).

We 'clashed' on a few points in the interview but it was a written exchange therefore I had no way to test the mood,

and I did not want to edit out anything from her replies, regardless of my own opinions, out of respect for

transparency and for her status/experience.

Other interviewees were more tuned into gender dynamics, whereas she refused point blank to admit

that a problem ever existed.

Not every woman experiences sexism directly but to deny that others do - and their lives can be made

into a living hell because of it - is problematic in my view.

Regardless, it was a great interview!

I find it odd how some women seek to undermine other women and the stuggles they face. It's great she did well but she 100% would have faced sexism in some degree. Sounds more like she buried it than didn't experience it.

Yes, and one never knows. Some people who experience bad things are not willing to talk about them, for lots of entirely understandable reasons - protecting their careers, for one, and their wellbeing - therefore you could never
have an open discussion about such things with them... maybe in private, if you got to know them well. Nobody wants to be pigeon-holed either, so that you acquire victim status for life... Some people shrug things off and 'get on with the job', but when there are stories of brave men and women speaking out about workplace malpractice that has caused significant damage to their lives, you cannot say "it did not happen to me, therefore..."! That part of her response, as I said, made me wonder about a lack of empathy. Perhaps she thought I was trying to force through my own version of history and that did not sit down well with her. I will never know.
