Welcome to La Femme Collective! I’m Gemma and I’ll be your Executive Editor. (Sounds very fancy. I’m excited about it.)

I’d like to start off by saying we’re not here to preach to you about your life choices. I’m not a business expert. I’m 25 and on my third career path to date. What I do understand, however, is being a young woman and trying to achieve your dreams. Or figure out what your dreams are. Or actually just achieve anything that’s yours, for you to be proud of.

If you have a story you’d like to share then we want to hear it. If you just like seeing what other people are up to then feel free to satisfy your curiosity! If you have a question - I can’t guarantee that we’ll know the answer, but we will do our very best to find out - or find you someone who does.

We want LFC to be a space to take experience and life lessons from real women, doing real jobs. Everyone is welcome here – our subjects are female but this is not a ‘ladies only’ kind of environment. We’ll be studying the careers of some inspirational women and I believe this should be a source of strength for all.

As females of the species we tend to get a raw deal in the workplace; glass ceilings and pay discrepancies are well documented… and they’re there to be shattered.

We want to hear from you! Comment your thoughts below, or submit your own story here!
