It is that good. It is so special, memorable, and inspiring, and my adjectives don’t express well enough all the feelings this book induces.

The photographs are as stunning as you expect from National Geographic. There are also interviews that will take your breath away. Varied cultures are represented,

As a visual history fan, this was right in my wheelhouse. It’s a collection of photographs of women throughout the history of the National Geographic photo archive, accompanied by interviews with a number of public figures (including Oprah, Christiane Amanpour, Chimimanda Ngozi Adiche, Roxane Gay, and more!). The questions posed to each asked them about their greatest strengths, their identification with feminism, and what they saw the greatest challenges facing society at present - it made for ...more

National Geographic continues its wonderful collection of gorgeous coffee table books this season with the stunning Women- the National Geographic Image Collection.


The book is divided into six chapters- Joy, Beauty, Love, Wisdom, Strength and Hope. Each section contains full page photos of women from all over the world, of all ages and cultures. The placement of the photos is thoughtful, like the photo of a glorious smiling Dolly Parton holding a banjo (taken by Jodi Cobb in 1978) facing a

An absolutely stunning collection of images complete with stories and facts from every walk of life. While it does include famous names in her, they are a very small percentage of contributing material- the rest is regular, every day women. Every culture, every continent, every corner. An amazing book that all girls should get to look at- it's inspiring to say the least.
