“Who run the world? Girls.”
…Or at least we should.
copywriter & digital marketing expert
I've worked in digital marketing for my entire career. I've worked with one-person shops and websites with tens of millions of visitors per month. That means I worked with a lot of dudes.
And I saw the boys' clubs form even though leadership insisted the company believed in equality. When I grabbed drinks with coworkers, we made actual lists of all the times we had to work twice as hard for less money. I had to public call out blatant sexism in company-wide Slack channels more than once.
In 2019, I left that all behind, because, like… fuck that?
Now I own my own business, helping women chase their dreams through conversion copy and strategic marketing.
In 2018, female-founded companies received just 2% of all VC funding. In the whole year. In fact, that year, female-founded companies raised $10 billion less than Juul did alone.
And don't let any internalized misogyny mislead you: That's not because men happened to start better companies.
Look at literally any (legitimate) study on wage parity and it’s clear that across industries, women’s contributions aren't as valued as men's.
That's not even touching the immense institutional barriers that Black women, women of color, trans women, queer women, and gender non-conforming people also face, simply due to their identity.
So, long story short?
I'm over it, and I want to help change it.
