About

All the Freelance Women’s mission is to provide information and perspectives to help women of all types from around the world build powerful self-directed freelance businesses in any field.

 

Women and their careers come in all descriptions and sizes. We each face unique opportunities and challenges that are shaped by our backgrounds, nationalities, gender identities, sexual orientations, religions, ethnicities, privileges, hardships, interests, and many other factors.


But whatever our situation and identity specifics, we all have one thing in common: We live in a man’s world.


And those of us who have discovered the benefits and joys of freelance work have something else in common: We are hard at work constructing independent, autonomous professional pathways in a world not designed for us.


As such, freelancing women can benefit from perspectives and advice from other women on how to design the lives we want. We can find inspiration and learn new things from the stories and ideas of other women pursuing any type of freelancing, from writing to coding to voiceover artistry.


How and why did these women find freelancing and develop their freelancing careers? How has freelancing helped them design their own life paths? How do they combine their work with their family lives? What are their strategies for propelling their careers forward? What are their dreams for the future? What advice would they give to others?


Women have a lot to say on these topics. For a variety of reasons, we tend to be really good at freelancing. And its autonomous and flexible nature makes it a perfect fit for many women’s life paths.


All The Freelance Women strives to amplify the voices of women freelancers so that other women can gain insight from the paths they’ve taken.


When we each succeed we all succeed.
