Women Revolutionize Mexico’s Coworking Offices
Four years ago, Mexico City had no coworking spaces exclusively for women. Now there are three, with room for 400 employees of female-fronted businesses. While providing a relaxing and productive environment, they also provide a safe space from the Mexican business world’s enduring paternalism — though it’s reportedly less malign than U.S. bro culture. A decade ago, 70 percent of Mexican female entrepreneurs stopped working after starting a family, according to research conducted by Mia, the latest female-focused space to open. Today, more women than men are launching their own businesses.
