The magazine of the photo-essay
April 2018 issue
200 Women
“A free, really high quality photo-essay magazine.  Fabulous!” Stephen Fry. British actor, writer and film maker
by Kieran Scott
Gloria Steinem once said, ‘You can’t empower women without listening to their stories.’ This book was inspired by that belief and our subsequent 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. 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.’ We sought to cut away distractions and the visual context of each woman’s life and to simply focus on her humanity. 200women
