  • Product Description

      200 incredible women. 126 hours of interviews. 16,000 photographs. 5 questions.


      A snapshot of female life around the globe: This collection of interviews with 200 women from a variety of backgrounds takes you on a journey that’s heartbreaking and uplifting. Each woman shares her unique reply to the same five questions: What really matters to you?, What brings you happiness?, What do you regard as the lowest depth of misery?, What would you change if you could?, and Which single word do you most identify with? The variety of answers offers gifts of empowerment and strength – inviting us to bring positive change at a time when so many are fighting for basic freedom and equality.


      Interviewees include: 


      Jane Goodall, conservation and animal welfare activist

      Margaret Atwood, author and winner of The Booker Prize

      Roxane Gay, author and feminist

      Renée Montagne, former host of NPR's Morning Edition

      Each interview is accompanied by a photographic portrait, resulting in a volume that is compelling in word and image—and global in its scope and resonance. This landmark book is published to coincide with an interactive website, building on this remarkable, ever-evolving project.


      200 Women reminds us that there are no ordinary women.


      Makes a wonderful birthday, graduation, or going away gift for every woman to encourage personal growth.

      Great coffee table book to spark conversations about powerful and inspirational women around the globe.
