Womeshare - a new collective idea for a local economy , a model worth exploring

Womanshare is a group of 100 women in New York City who have created a skills exchange group.

Each woman's hour is worth the same as any other woman's -- a lawyers' hour is worth the same as a housekeeper, dog walker, visual artist or babysitter.

"The money system is really based on scarcity- that there's not enough to go around and we all have to compete to get what we need." says founder Diana McCourt.  "Our goal is to create a community of abundance where there is plenty of help and plenty of resources to be shared."
