The Book. The Blog. The Foundation. Empowering Women in Solidarity. (TM)
The 50 Women Project is the umbrella name for two unique ventures: the book “50 Women” and the 50 Women Foundation. “50 Women” is a book anthology of life stories told by 50 women from 31 different countries around the world. With a strength and perseverance theme, the stories of “50 Women” explore sensitive and timely issues affecting women globally: armed conflict, sexual abuse, immigration, genocide, refugees, various health obstacles and women in business. It is my goal in creating this book to vividly illustrate the the common and uncommon issues women face globally. It is my hope that these stories will inspire readers to be more aware and more deeply involved in humanitarian efforts in each of the countries represented.
After publication of “50 Women”, the 50 Women Foundation will be created in order to use the book proceeds towards building a better world. The foundation will be project based and will ideally encourage collaboration by partnering with other aid organizations to help women in need.
What is the purpose of the blog?
The blog is to serve as a journal of the journey of the progress of this project. It is meant to add to the perspectives and in many cases provide background information to the context of some of the stories published in “50 Women”.
