National Geographic: Women of Impact

They push boundaries. They break glass ceilings. They are Women of Impact. As we approach the 100th anniversary of the U.S. constitutional amendment confirming women’s right to vote, a powerful new book from National Geographic showcases iconic women around the world. I am honored to have this image from Kenya on the cover of the new National Geographic book, WOMEN: The National Geographic Image Collection and to be a part of the upcoming National Geographic Documentary Women of Impact premiering on the National Geographic Channel Saturday October 26 at 10/9c.

WOMEN: The National Geographic Image Collection (October 22, 2019) illuminates, celebrates and reflects on where the world’s women have been, where they are now and where they are going. In conjunction with the book, National Geographic is publishing the companion documentary “Women of Impact.”

The book’s 400 stunning photographs, drawn from National Geographic’s unparalleled image collection, span three centuries and more than 30 countries. Each page creates a portrait of some aspect of women’s existence and shows readers how the depiction of women has evolved since National Geographic’s founding in 1888.

Featuring 17 behind-the-scenes stories from famed female National Geographic photographers, including Lynsey Addario, Jodi Cobb and Ami Vitale, about some of their most arresting images of women, this provocative book examines women’s lifestyles across world cultures, from historic suffragette images to the haunting.
