200 Women: Who Will Change The Way You See The World
This book was inspired by our idea 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.
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?

"This meticulously curated book is filled with interviews from women who've made their mark on the world in some way and asks them five crucial questions about happiness, sorrow and meaning. Quizzing the likes of Gillian Anderson, Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg, Whoopi Goldberg, Jane Goodall, Winnie Madikizela-Mandela and Roxane Gay (just to name a few), it's an inspiring book that'll change the way you see the world. Plus, the best part is that a fraction of the proceeds go towards organisations that empower women around the world." --Marie Claire "Eminently Instagrammable, this book features women you might recognise - Margaret Atwood, Bobbi Brown - plus some you might not, but should." Red Magazine "captures different female perspectives and proves that female beauty comes in many, many different forms." Elle "The coffee table book that will change your life. [...] Surprising, relatable and warmly funny, it's a book that deserves a place at the centre of your very finest table." --Stylist Magazine "WHAT WOMEN WANT. From Pussy Riot's Nadya Tolokonnikova to sexual-abuse activist Ashley Judd and athlete Caster Semenya, 200 Women is a portfolio of interviews and photographs of influential women.

Harper's Bazaar "A collection of interviews and photographs with women from different backgrounds, answering the same big questions about life.
