200 women from around the world, famous and unknown, answer the same 5 questions, such as "What really matters to you?" and "What would you change in the world if you could?" The answers are inspiring, moving, sometimes funny, sometimes painful, but always powerful. Interviewees include Graca Michel, widow of Nelson Mandela and an impressive political and social activist, author Margaret Atwood, Nobel laureate Jody Williams, US Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg, and women from around the world making a difference. Each interview is accompanied by a photographic portrait, resulting in a volume that is compelling in word and image as it is global in its scope. It is published to coincide with an interactive website, and a photographic exhibition which MAY come to New Zealand. New Zealand interviewees include, Louise Nicholas, Marilyn Waring, Damaris Coulter, Kimbra Johnson, Lydia Ko, Marama Fox, Eva McGauley and Karen Walker.
Ruth Hobday and Geoff Blackwell have collaborated on some big best sellers in NZ, including the M.I.L.K. series, Mandela, Wisdom, and many others.
