A message to women from women
"Empowering women through their job and passion" aims to give space to those women who lead and manage their professional activity with enthusiasm and enterprise.
The main goal of this project is to inspire, through the bravery of the women I interviewed, all the other women that for many reasons cannot find the necessary strength and resources to believe in themselves.
Therefore, it is a message to women from women.
"Through semi-structured interviews I chose to bring to light stories about freelance women. With photography and dialogues we investigated the professional experiences of these great artisans and entrepreneurs, exploring also the gender and self-empowerment dimensions, their personal fulfilment through their passion, profession and career."
Sabrina Allegra, sociologist and project's creator
The common thread of these six life stories is the determination and the bravery (aspect that emerged from the interviews). Having believed in themselves and taking the challenge made them realize, day by day, their own passion despite difficulties and obstacles which always occur.
The interviewed women represent a miscellaneous sample by age, provenance and professional field. Along my path I met them in some cases by chance, because of coincidence and in some others Life made us sisters.
