200 Women: Who will change the way you see the world
200 Women is a book and exhibition project inspired by a belief that you can’t empower
women without listening to their stories. So we set out to persuade two hundred women
in different parts of the world – whether they be rich or poor, black or white, educated or
uneducated, famous or unknown – to sit or stand in front of a plain sheet of fabric and to
be photographed and filmed while answering five fundamental questions.
Our goal was not to make a book about just successful and powerful women – those
stories are important – but we wanted diversity, and above all, authenticity. Two hundred
'real women', with ‘real stories’, including ten of our own very inspiring New Zealanders.
The result is 200 Women: Who will change the way you see the world – a book,
audiobook and exhibition founded on original interviews and accompanying photographic
portraits that is the realisation of an epic global journey to find two hundred women with
diverse backgrounds, and to ask, what really matters to them.
