Why freelance women?

For a variety of reasons, women tend to be really good at freelancing. And its autonomous and flexible nature makes it a perfect fit for many women’s life paths.

But starting and developing a freelance career can be daunting. 

Women need perspectives and advice from other women on how to approach freelancing as a sustainable income-generating enterprise that can help us design the lives we want.

All The Freelance Women strives to amplify the voices of women freelancers of all kinds from around the world so that other women can learn from the paths they’ve taken.

Those paths can be difficult — even dangerous — yet these women succeed at building awesome freelance careers just the same. 

Welcome to this positive, supportive community of women and non-binary freelancers who recognize that when we each succeed we all succeed.
