Often I experience that men objectify me instead of regarding me as a person with skills and ambitions. It is therefore hopeless to depend on their support when it comes to my career. I created Women Connect! to build a reliable network for talented and skilled females from all fields who wish to contribute to and benefit from other women's professional exeriences. This is a women-only listserv that provides a space for us to connect, exchange advice, ideas and share useful contacts to support each other's careers and projects.
