Girl Power

I have traveled to over 100 countries and to every continent on Earth and wherever I have been, I have been amazed by the strength and resilience of women.  I have learned that when you empower a woman, she often lifts the whole village.  And yet, in many parts of the world, women are disenfranchised; they are not allowed to work, be educated, drive, open a bank account, own a business, or even leave the house without a male escort.  How can we solve the big issues of our generation, like climate change, if half of the world population is not empowered to participate in the solutions?  I hope my images and stories about women, their struggles and their beauty, can help spart a wider conversation about a kinder, more inclusive society where women can play a leadership role.
