Today is a day of many things. It’s a day to celebrate women like the one tomorrow. It is also Thursday. But most of all, it’s launching day.
A couple of weeks ago we pre-launched in quiet, by opening up the registration function for women all over the world. As of today, there are about 302 of us here, 150 searchable, a number we hope will explode during the days and weeks and years to come.
Today we are finally opening the search function, as well as this place, the blog. From now on, anyone can create an account for free and search for female talent globally.
There are about a thousand things we’d like to say today. But we'll settle for the most important one:
Everyone that supported our Kickstarter campaign during the autumn and winter of 2017, thank you. Everyone that have sent encouraging emails along the way, thank you.
Julia Wallin, developer and genius being the one coding this ambition into a reality, thank you. Linnea Mesko, designer talent making it look as beautiful as it does, thank you. Martina Larsson, PR professional helping us spread the word, thank you. Vanessa Tryde, photographer portraying us much cooler than we felt, thank you.
Every woman in the register, supporting the cause of highlighting female talent by creating a profile of their own, thank you.
Anyone in our industry willing to make a change for the better, thank you.
Tomorrow we celebrate six weeks on the internet. Ad Women is alive and well, and the register is growing each day.
New women are joining in, and the list of titles are growing bigger, thanks to you. Your contribution is priceless and we truly love you for speaking your mind about what’s good, what’s missing and what should change.
One of the biggest changes since the launch was made yesterday. From now on you won’t need an account to search the register, but will be able to do so immediately. Either by using the filters on your right, or just by typing what you are looking for in the big field saying ”Type to search”.
Simple as that.
