Q: Where does the name ‘A Woman Determined’ come from?

A: We have been passionate about the feminist cause for a number of years; when we felt that we needed to create a platform to express this to the world, we spent weeks searching for the perfect quote on female empowerment.  In the end, after much debate, we settled on the quote from W. E. B. Du Bois: “There is no force equal to a woman determined to rise”.

Q: Who is ‘we’?

A: This blog is the baby of a young professional in London but the content is a result of collaboration between said yuppie and her friends, family and colleagues.

Q: Will you feature posts from guest writers or link to other blogs? 

A: Of course, provided that the content is in line with the objective of A Woman Determined; the promotion of gender equality. We are not a site designed to promote female superiority and will not accept articles or post suggestions which are in any way derogatory to men.  Fundamentally, we’re believers in treating others as you wish to be treated.  In this case, equally, across gender, race, profession, nationality and any other social differential that you can think of.
