Womentality: Thirteen Empowering Stories by Everyday Women Who Said Goodbye to the Workplace and Hello to Their Lives is a collection of powerful, personal essays from enterprising women around the world who came to the same realization: work shouldnt have to be painful and demeaning. Armed with an internet connection and plenty of creativity and ingenuity, they prove that it is possible to redefine the nine-to-five work paradigm and create a flourishing career that is flexible and fulfilling outside the corporate structure.
The thirteen womenfrom diverse countries such as Uganda, Venezuela, Poland, Palestine, and the Philippinesapproach independent work in different ways, but are all motivated by the same impulsesto escape the drudgery of office life, to have control of their time, and to enjoy the freedom of working for themselves. Importantly, many discover thatoutside of the officeit is possible to triumph over global pay disparities that favor men.
Womentality is not a book about people who do not workon the contrary, these women work hard and their stories illustrate how they overcame challenges to achieve their goalswhether they sought freedom to travel, to spend more time with the family, escape demeaning office politics, or simply to control their career.
The essays inWomentality prove that a life of independence is not reserved for elite, American workers. It is possible for anyone. As the women who contributed toWomentality can attest: escaping the nine-to-five life isnt easyit takes guts and persistencebut its absolutely worthwhile.
