a modern woman

Ask any woman if she considers herself to be a modern woman and few will say “no”. The other alternative is just not attractive. But what does it mean to be a modern woman?

”My baby is only 3 months old and I am starting to feel that urge to be free. Get out. Go to work. Not to sit at home and breastfeed. I love children but that’s not my thing. I need some space. Typical eh. The modern woman. (Maria is a 37 year old journalist in Stockholm, Sweden)

“When you look at me you see traditional women. I have my chicken and I sell my eggs. But I am actually a modern woman. You can’t see it but my dreams are modern. In my dreams I am a pilot or a doctor. And I live in America. You see now. I am modern.” (Alganech is a 42 year old business owner in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia)
