Publisher Description

An extraordinary book about equality founded on 200 original and diverse interviews with women from around the world

You can’t empower women without listening to their stories – Gloria Steinem

Famous and unknown, celebrated and marginalised, rich and poor, black and white, leaders, victims, survivors, heroes, saints and sinners. Women who will educate and inspire us, teach us empathy, and bring positive change in a time when so many women and girls are still fighting for basic freedom and equality.

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 ask them what really matters to them.

All two hundred women were photographed against the same background and asked the same five 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 complelling in both world and image - and global in its scope and resonance. With responses that range from uplifting to heartbreaking, these women offer gifts of empowerment and strenth, inviting us to bring positive change at a time when so many people are fighting for basic feedom and equality. It's a book that confirms what we already know - there are no ordinary women.

A percentage of proceeds will be distributed to organisations primarily devoted to protecting and advancing the rights of women.

Every woman should be given this book so that we can learn and know these names and faces. It's sad that we are not taught about all these successful women growing up. It's great to learn about women other than Oprah and Ellen (nothing against them whatsoever) who have been just as triumphant in their own way. It also makes me happy to see women of all backgrounds and ages interviewed.
