With my mind on my money, with my money on my mind – Snoop.’
Indian housewives own about 11% of the world’s gold. We weren’t legally allowed to inherit ancestral property, rarely had access to education and weren’t allowed to open bank accounts until the 60s at the earliest, others gaining that right much later. Buying gold, valuable jewellery and other “shiny things” like magpies has been the only way women historically, have had access to capital they can run with in the night from abusive marriages.
We gift our brides gold so that she always has something she can sell in a pinch. Women of all generations, all cultures have always passed hidden safety to their daughters in any way they can and we buy our financial freedom so that we are never trapped, never forced to compromise safety for peace.
