Women-only co-working space opens in Chicago

Article here. Excerpt:

'There's another new option for entrepreneurs looking for shared office space in downtown Chicago. But not if they have a Y chromosome.

Adding to a flurry of co-working outfits that have popped up around downtown Chicago in recent years, former entertainment and media executive Alicia Driskill last month launched EvolveHer, a collaborative office space in River North meant to offer the same workplace flexibility touted by industry giants like WeWork, but for women only.

Tucked into an open concept, 5,000-square-foot loft at 358 W. Ontario St., the office is a different spin on the co-working trend that Driskill is betting will attract female entrepreneurs looking for shared space that comes with a community of other women in business.

"We really wanted to create a space that fosters collaboration," said Driskill, a 39-year-old former vice president of global partnerships at entertainment agency WME-IMG, who is funding the venture on her own. "We want this to be the members' space. This is about building it together."'

Ever notice...

... it's always women-only offices and not women-only sewars, roofing companies, or garbage-collection companies?

Or armies?

Just sayin'.
