Last year, in May 2020, a project began sponsored and initiated by Confessions of the Professions, with each year always trying to come up with a brand new project. This year we are focused on expanding the reaches of the My Life As A Woman Project Initiative. The project focused on obtaining the stories of women throughout the world, in every country, and asked them about their lives, what life was like living as a woman in their country. What we were interested in finding out was how women grew up, how they were raised, how they were treated by their families, what life was like for them growing up, what their goals and ambitions were, successes along the way, as well as any failures or struggles that they may have faced in trying to reach their milestones.
The response was overwhelming which was helped with the fact that the world was mostly in a quarantine pandemic lockdown in which no one was allowed to leave home, the vast majority of businesses were closed, and much of the world’s workforce was laid off, especially the industries which were mostly female. We turned to Fiverr for our initial pool of women, reaching every country listed, including the places where no women were listed, in which we employed men who knew and would hire women for us to write their stories or obtain the stories from the women directly. To places not located on Fiverr, we turned to Instagram and Facebook groups. Out of 1,500 to 2,000 women who were asked, 550 women ended up responding. Out of 550 women, we narrowed down the official tally of women with eligible stories down to about 530 women from about 200 countries.
This book serves as a historical record and document to understand the lives of women in the 21st century, in 2020. It will be interesting to note what women’s are lives going forward in the future, and having this book serve as a representation of how governments, society, and families treat women. There is a lot of knowledge and wisdom within this book and many articles come quite detailed, as women tend to reflect and re-iterate even small details about their lives. With over 700 pages in the book edition and over 1200 pages in the Kindle edition, this is not a short read, but it is a read that is well worth it.
