200 Women

Who Will Change The Way You See The World


Interviews with 200 women from a variety of backgrounds provide a snapshot of female life around the globe. Interviewees include:

Jane Goodall, conservation and animal welfare activist

Margaret Atwood, author and winner of The Booker Prize

Roxane Gay, author and feminist

Renée Montagne, former host of NPR’s Morning Edition

Alicia Garza, activist and co-founder of Black Lives Matter

Alfre Woodard, award-winning actor and activist

Marian Wright Edelman, head of the Children's Defense Fund

Lydia Ko, professional golfer and Olympian

Dolores Huerta, labor activist, community organizer, and co-founder of the National Farm Workers Association

Alice Waters, chef, author, and food rights advocate

Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, author and Macarthur Foundation fellow

Each woman shares her unique reply to the same five 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?, and Which single word do you most identify with?

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.

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 interactive website, building on this remarkable, ever-evolving project.

A percentage of the originating publisher’s revenue from book sales will be distributed to organizations nominated by the women featured in the book.

Kieran Scott is an Auckland New Zealand - based photographer whose editorial and commercial work has appeared in hundreds of magazines, books, Ad Campaigns and Design clients for the last 25 years.
