When it comes to money, women face a unique set of challenges that often leave them shortchanged. From the gender pay gap, career breaks if they decide to start a family or care for other family members, diminished super, or just not having the time to focus, women can find themselves left behind when it comes to taking care of their cash.

Whether you're kickstarting your career or planning your retirement, getting married or breaking up, today we'll be tackling the unique decisions that women need to make when handling their finances.

On this episode of Pocket Money, we speak with Bauer Media's finance editor, commentator and financial literacy campaigner, and the author of the all-new book A Real Girl's Guide to Money, Effie Zahos.
