and HALIFAX, NOVA SCOTIA -- (Marketwired) -- 11/19/13 -- Coinciding
with Financial Literacy Month and Financial Planning Week in Canada,
Anita Saulite, financial expert seen on CTV National News and Global
News, releases a new book to financially empower women. The Savvy
Money Gal - Six Savvy Money Strategies for Successful Women, is for
women across demographics and articulates the importance of being
strategic and value driven when making financial decisions. Partial
proceeds benefit The Canadian Women's Foundation, which also endorsed
the book. 
One of the book's top priorities is to address the poverty affecting
countless women in Canada, and globally. For example: women head 80%
of all single parent families in Canada - over one million families -
and these women are amongst the poorest of all Canadians. Single moms
have an average net worth of $17,000, while single dads average a net
worth $80,000.  
"The Savvy Money Gal wants to identify what's holding women back and
teach them practical financial skills that empower them to stand in
their own strength," explains Saulite. "I want all women to achieve
successful financial outcomes by making more mindful and conscious
decisions about money. This is necessary for women across
demographics, not just those we view as poor." 
To celebrate the launch, The Canadian Women's Foundation is
distributing free copies in Halifax and Toronto, and other recipient
organizations include the Calgary Women's Centre, Vancouver's
Downtown Eastside Women's Centre, and the Surrey Women's Centre. 
In addition to distributing free copies, Saulite's book is also
available for purchase at: Amazon.ca and in bookstores across Canada.
