Growing up as a young woman, I struggled when it came to female role models. Television, social media and magazines celebrated and promoted outstanding, intelligent, beautiful women who had achieved incredible things but whose lives were unique and frankly didn’t really reflect the day-to-day experiences of women around the world. Living a life like theirs seemed unattainable and inaccessible and I desperately wanted to hear about the lives of everyday women, to celebrate them as a role models and to discuss the issues and challenges they face on a daily basis.
Too often, the experiences, stories, opinions and ideas of lesser-known women go untold and this blog seeks to give voice to those women, to provide them with a platform to tell their stories, to normalise discussion of the 21st century female experience and to promote accessible female role models for young women.
