The Wonder Women Project is about empowering women by showing that female excellence isn’t an exception, it’s the rule.
We are trying to spark social change.
How many female inventors, mathematicians, film directors, or astronomers can you name off the top of your head? Don’t google it. Can you name a dozen? Half a dozen? If you’re like me, then you probably struggled. Sure you could name Amelia Earhart or Marie Curie. Sophia Coppola comes to mind when I think of Hollywood directors. But after that it gets a bit harder. Repeat that exercise for notable men. It’s easier. Why?
Woman have made countless contributions to the world - in the arts, sciences, government, engineering, etc.. Name a field and there’s an amazing woman. But why aren’t we more aware of them?
At the Wonder Women Project we hope that by highlighting female excellence we can spark social change. When males see female excellence as the part of the norm we will be on our way towards meaningful change and gender equality.
People love collecting things - stamps, Pokemon cards, even cars. People also tend to know things about their collections - the year a stamp was issued, the stats of a Pokemon creature, the number of cars made for a certain model. People also tend to share this knowledge. Our hope is to harness this tendency.
That in a nutshell is what The Wonder Women Project is about. Why not join us in this journey?
