Interview with Norma Yaeger: Breaking Down the Walls

Share +

When Norma Yaeger acquired her New York Stock Exchange license in 1962, she didn’t know of any other women in the industry. The Stock Exchange didn’t even allow women to step foot on its floor. But having just escaped poverty in NY’s Catskill Mountains, and determined to support her children, Norma wasn’t going to let the exclusionary traditions of the financial industry stop her from becoming a stockbroker.

What an honor it was to interview such a remarkable woman! She has also generously offered her new book, Breaking Down the Walls, to the first 10 members of the WomenWealthyWise community who email
