“We are ready to speak up for ourselves,” Zhazha Casanova, owner of Studio G, added to WBBM. “We’re being unapologetically ourselves.”

What are women-only workspaces all about?

It’s female-focused, WBBM reported.

“No boys allowed,” Casanova declared to the station. “Sorry.”

Still, Driskill told WBBM there’s no war on men afoot: “We’re not men haters. We love men. It’s more about supporting women and giving back.”

Members pay to use the spaces to work — and to learn, the station said.

And a broad range of professions is represented at Evolveher, including “photographers, videographers, pediatric occupational therapists,” Driskill told WBBM, adding that members can develop contacts and collaborate.

Plus, the workspaces are equipped to help women get their jobs done, the station said.

“We have a podcast room,” Casanova told WBBM. “We have a YouTube room.”

For Driskill, it’s all about being ready to “drive real business. We help support business grow,” she told the station.

“We’re not really going against [men],” Casanova added to WBBM. “We’re just trying to level up with them.”
