Think the stock market is a man's domain? Think again. This video is from the recent Women's Investing Conference held at The Motley Fool headquarters in Alexandria, Va., which gathered women investors from all ages and walks of life to discuss how individual investors can get an edge on Wall Street and invest better.

Getting started as an investor can be very intimidating. Caution, fear, and a sense of underqualification keep so many from ever investing in the stock market and deny them huge long-term gains. In this segment, Motley Fool Chief Marketing Officer Rebekah Hughes speaks to the Women's Investing Conference audience about her first experiences with the stock market, how she overcame those new-investor jitters, and how she went on to being a confident investor who was able to grow her wealth by 50% through her investing decisions.
