Why we

It’s easy to give up. It’s the easiest thing you ever done. So, go ahead, give up! Now tell us how does that feel? We know, you don’t even know where to begin. So how about doing something about it?!?

Because you can do better or different.

Because you are smart and creative.

Because you are strong.

No matter where you come from.

Even if that inner voice tells you’ve done all you could, you might be in for a surprise.

In today’s world, everything is a struggle. Think about finding a good coffee place, a nice apartment or a job you really love. Add to that being a woman, living abroad and coming from the East. You might wake up!

There is a lot to share and discuss. We have come far. But not even close to where we need to be.

Did you know in the EU women’s gross hourly earnings are on average 16.1 % below those of men?

And that only 30% of 7 million people working in the information and communication sector (ICT) are women?

Or that only 19.2% of ICT workers have female bosses, compared to 45.2% of non-ICT?

There is always hope as, for example, women in eastern Europe lead the way to some senior roles.

That’s why we are here. To tell stories about women. Women in business. About living and working abroad in creative industries, tech, startups and beyond. In Europe and beyond.

Join us in our attempt to change the status quo. Like and share our stories. We welcome all women who are willing to share their experiences and tell their stories. Become a member and help us make a difference!
