Women & Money

Women and Money
In 1966, Barclays sent out over a million credit cards to customers. And so began a revolution in the way we shop and pay for goods. None of the customers had asked for these cards - and it was an entirely new product in the UK. Many of those who received these credit cards were women, and it meant that women could get credit without having to get a man to sign for it or act as a guarantor. Sarah Pennells and her guests discuss how credit cards have changed over the past 50 years and look at current rates and deals available.
