What does it mean to be a woman in her thirties, today?
It's a question that we, the two founders of Project 30Somethings, pondered in our own minds many times, but by chance one of us asked out loud to the other.
We think that a thirty-something woman today is experiencing life differently than at any other time in history. In this time when our aspirations and our biology can be in conflict. In this time when some of the world’s most powerful countries are defining and redefining our roles, rights and responsibilities. In this time when we feel torn between who womankind was growing up and where womankind is headed.
Project 30Somethings is inspired by our own experiences and conversations about what it means to be a woman in her thirties today, all around the world.
We are curious about the invisible support net we can make visible by sharing our own truths and feelings. We want to create an archive that documents this time in all of our lives.
We’re gathering stories, photographs, drawings, essays, paintings, texts, anything that can be uploaded visually and eventually printed into an anthology of this moment.
We have so much we don’t know, and every one of us out there has one piece of the answer.
Explore the ever-growing archive:
We’d love it if you shared your piece.
We understand that figuring out where to start can sometimes be a difficult task. So, we've complied a list of questions that will guide you through the process of documenting this time in your 30s.
