Brought to you by the good folks at Wells Fargo, Women Making Financial History is an exhibit that explores the topic of women and money from the frontier to the present. The exhibition features women’s roles in managing money, earning money, and investing money — then and now.  Currently the exhibit can be viewed at the Wells Fargo History museum in San Fransisco, CA.
