“If you have knowledge, let others light their candles in it.”
Margaret Fuller, journalist, critic and women’s right advocate.
We all know women in our communities, workplaces, peer groups and society that make a huge difference day in, day out. With women making up nearly half of the world’s population it’s about time we shared these stories of success and inspiration!
Women In Web will showcase women from all walks of life, sharing their stories and journeys of how they have got to where they are today. Women In Web has a simple purpose- it’s a place where women from across the globe can share their experiences, knowledge and ideas with each other. We feel we can learn so much from each other, whether we are 18 or 81!
Women In Web will spark new ideas and motivate our contributors and readers to embrace new challenges. This website will feature Q&As, editorial style pieces, advice posts and exclusive interactive features including web blogs and live Twitter Q&A sessions. We want you, the reader, to be actively involved, and encourage you to interact with content on the website as well as on our social media platforms. There will be opportunities for you to also be a starring part of Women In Web by contributing content of your own! Keep an eye out for special posts featuring our readers, and in the meantime, feel free to contact us if you have an idea or suggestion for Women In Web.
We will also feature perspectives from men, particularly how they are supporting women in their careers and professional development. If you are a man who wants to support Women In Web email us today!
We’re grateful to our advocates including Chwarae Teg, Monster, Sweet Lemon Magazine and Womenalia who have supported us from the very beginning of our journey. We’re looking for individuals, brands and organizations who are interested in supporting Women In Web, sharing our collective commitment to empowering women and girls across the globe. For further information please contact us.
It is our aim that Women In Web will be motivating, intellectually stimulating and exciting for both its contributors and readers, and we’ve got some fantastic content lined up for you!
We can’t wait to hear your thoughts and thanks for your support.
Laura Dunn and Ena Lloyd

Guilty Pleasure: I love a homemade ice cream sandwich!
Favourite City: I love the USA, and have spent a fair deal of time in both Washington DC and New York. I love Washington DC for its majestic buildings and political history, and spending time as an intern in the House of Representatives was one of the most exciting experiences. I love New York for the shopping, sights and excitement, and there’s always something new to do on each visit!
Favourite Quote: “Learn from yesterday. Live for today. Hope for tomorrow.”- Albert Einstein.
Role Models: My parents, Michelle Obama, Hillary Clinton, Nancy Pelosi, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, Dayle Haddon, Aerin Lauder and Tory Burch.
Next challenge: Finishing my first novel!
What I couldn’t live without: Aside from my family and friends, it would be my MacBook, the Wi-Fi connection and an occasional spend in J.Crew!
Guilty Pleasure: Milk chocolate!
Favourite City: I have to say I have two! Buenos Aires for its edginess but compassionate people and of course the passion it has for a massive variety of cultures. It’s not just a place where to learn how to Tango!
The other is St Davids, Pembrokeshire. A lot of my family still live in and around the smallest city in the UK, if not Europe. Not that I’m biased, but it’s safe to say, Pembrokeshire is the thinking person’s Cornwall- but without too many people and more natural rugged landscapes!
Favourite Quote: A Buddhist quote, based on the three R’s- Respect for yourself, respect for others and responsibility for your actions.
Role Models: Anyone who has a can do attitude, but in particular my Mam, Dorothy, who is an example of a woman who has continued to develop her skills and knowledge. Tani Grey-Thompson for grit and sheer determination, and many others too for their uniqueness.
Fun Fact: I’ve traveled to 56 countries to date.
What I couldn’t live without: Not withstanding my family and friends, it would have to be my iPad, the sound of the sea crashing against the rocks and the smell of homemade bread!
