Overview

Two hundred women from a variety of backgrounds are asked the same five questions. Their answers are inspiring human 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 for that, each woman shares her unique replies to questions like "What really matters to you?" and "What would you change in the world if you could?" Interviewees include conservation and animal welfare activist Jane Goodall, actor and human rights advocate Alfre Woodard, and Nobel Peace laureate Rigoberta Menchu, along with those who are making a difference behind the scenes around the world, such as Marion Wright Edelman, head of the Children's Defense Fund. 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 immersive traveling exhibition and an interactive website, building on this remarkable, ever-evolving project. With responses ranging from uplifting to heartbreaking, these women offer gifts of empowerment and strength—inviting us to bring positive change at a time when so many are fighting for basic freedom and equality.

200 Women: Who Will Change The Way You See The World is quite a significant and meaningful achievement, and I believe it will help my own daughters make significant and meaningful achievements in their own lives. The book features remarkable full-page portraits that would make the book, alone, welcome on any coffee table, library, or museum for that matter. Yet it is the many answers these remarkably successful — by a wide variety of definitions — women offer to a set listing of questions that makes the book so meaningful and memorable. Inventors, innovators, artists, and leaders of all kinds are included. Often, just a few answers are included for a particular woman, yet this editing is welcome, and their answers are insightful, profound, and hopeful in the best sense. Other women are just featured as a portrait and a word they most identify with. A literally wonderful book.
