LADYBITS

breaking through

LadyBits was founded in 2013 by Arikia Millikan. What began as a rejected pitch at WIRED grew to be a collective of over 100 writers publishing hundreds of articles that reached millions of readers worldwide. The premise of LadyBits was simple: we believed that women were interested in technology just as much as men, despite the industry-wide belief that tech was a man's topic. Five years later, the LadyBits ripple in the publishing industry has spread far beyond the original collective. But our work is far from done.

In 2013, I launched LadyBits and set off on the journey of a lifetime. With the support of readers like you, I traveled to over 35 countries in Europe, Asia, Africa, and the Middle East, writing my way around the world. I currently live in Berlin, where I am researching the path forward for online journalism and writing a sci-fi memoir based on my journeys. You can continue to support my creative exploration by contributing a dollar or two a month to my Patreon:

I once told a friend I wanted to be a foreign correspondent. He replied: So go somewhere foreign and correspond.
