Women and finance – An evolving image
While the "world of securities" is still largely perceived as a male-dominated environment, it is not until you take a closer look at historic share and bond certificates that you realize women can be found everywhere you look.
However, for hundreds of years their role was limited to that of marketing icons. Nowadays, women not only hold the purse strings in many homes, but are also playing a greater role on the political stage – and this is not just with respect to traditional family issues; women are increasingly involved in shaping financial and economic policy, founding companies and managing large corporations.
In exhibiting around 100 historic securities, the exhibition charts the evolution of women's portrayal on securities through the centuries and provides a fascinating insight into female investors and businesswomen over time.
