Work

“Work” is a value-laden term that has changed drastically over time, particularly in relation to women’s daily lives. Despite a legacy of opinions to the contrary, WWHP views women’s work as inherently valuable, whether taking place in the formal structure of paid employment or the private realm of home and family. We seek to understand each woman’s work on her own terms in her own words.

"I’d just say to shoot for the stars. Again, whatever it is, whatever your passion is, go for it. And again, if you enjoy what you do, you’ll never work a day in your life."
