Birds on Mars
Why the world of work isn't working for women
You’ve worked hard and you’re proud of your career. But you know there’s more to life than work. You want a life of meaning but you’re not sure if continuing on your current path is the way to get there. Lean in as much as you want: if the structure is broken, you’re going to have to break yourself to fit into it.
When we’re burning the planet (and ourselves) out, feminism means more than increasing the number of women running large companies. Instead, it’s about remaking the world of work so that women who want both career and family are set up to thrive. This explores how it's already happening.
The Almost Girlfriend
A fiction story about pseudo-relationships
While her classmates were protesting against climate change, Alyssa quietly built herself a career in renewable energy finance. When that career brings her to London at 29, she turns to solving something even more challenging: her love life.
Nobody told her that dating apps were the emotional equivalent of Tough Mudder.
Most of her friends are settling down but Alyssa isn’t sure she wants white picket fences. During a rollercoaster dating journey, where one dinner companion browses Tinder while she’s in the restaurant bathroom, she wonders what the happy ending for a twenty-first-century feminist even looks like.
