‘You can’t empower women without listening to their stories.’ - Gloria Steinem
Founded on original interviews and accompanying photographic portraits, this landmark book is the realisation of an epic global journey to find two hundred women with diverse backgrounds, and to ask them what really matters to them. All two hundred women were photographed against the same background and asked the same five fundamental questions. Their answers reveal truth, wisdom, and inspiring stories of success and courage, love and pain, redemption and generosity. From well-known activists, artists and innovators to everyday women whose lives are no less exceptional, each woman shares her unique replies to questions that reveal a human being’s deepest motivation, happiness, sadness and hope. Each interview is accompanied by a photographic portrait from award-winning photographer Kieran E. Scott, resulting in a volume that is compelling in both word and image – and global in its scope and resonance.
