It's not easy being a young woman living in the city.
The rent is high, the wages are low, the rat race is getting faster, our friends are changing and we're trying to figure out why 'adulting' was not a lesson in school.
We want to love the city that they’ve chosen to call home, but it’s hard to find people that we can truly connect with, a collection of third places that they feel comfortable in and the secrets that make the city more than just a people trap.
Social media makes city girl life look easy. We see girls checking into fancy bars on Facebook, tweeting about their busy day and Instagramming the food, fashion and architecture. The unspoken truth, however, is that social media is built to show the best bits, not the real ones.
We don't need a show, a book, or a podcast on how hard it is to be a city girl. We need the City Girl Network.
WHAT IS IT?!
The City Girl Network is made up of a collective of local communities, made up of twenty-something women coming together in the cities they've chosen to call home.
These communities exist both offline and online - with coffee mornings, evening drinks, cinema trips, gigs, exhibitions and anything that the City Girls like to do!
Not to mention the ad-hoc hang outs that City Girls organise in our official Facebook member groups!
We're planning world domination
But we only started in March 2016, so bear with us.
