The Inspirational Woman Project is the beginning of a movement. It will launch as a coffee table book with 100 interviews with amazing, phenomenal women celebrating and exploring what it means to be a woman.
I'm Bri - the founder of The Inspirational Woman Project. This movement began with a small exploration with 31 women answering the question, "What Does It Mean to be a Woman?" I was inspired to begin asking this question after reading the Dictionary.com definition of woman, wherein I learned that based on that definition - I am only a fraction of a woman. It was a 31 day blog series investigating this topic, that then led into a personal invitation from Arianna Huffington to bring my voice to the Huffington Post blog (read my first article on this same subject HERE). This invitation encouraged me to dive deeper into the conversation.
Over the past eight weeks, I have conducted nearly 100 interviews with inspirational women around the world. Interview subjects have included my family and friends, entrepreneurs, athletes, drag queens, mothers, designers, artists, grandmothers, attorneys, actresses, and everything in between! These women have touched upon what being a woman means, their femininity, how they inspire the world around them, and why being a woman is so great!
The women interviewed have all expressed their awe in the process of delving into questions that are not asked or discussed in our culture.
"I think this is the most difficult interview I’ve prepared for. I know every answer about my business without thinking. But I have never asked myself these questions - I actually had to think about them! We don’t ask or take the time to sit down and process these things. Answering them make forces you to make a conscious effort to empower yourself and others." -Ana Cara
The Inspirational Woman Project movement encourages women to start a conversation about their influence in the world. We believe that every single woman is inspirational in her own way, yet how many of us truly believe that we are? We believe that if every woman could see the ability for inspiration within herself, the world would be a remarkably different place!
"I originally felt really intimidated to participate in these interviews thinking, "What have I accomplished that's inspirational?". But perhaps that's the beauty of it all. You don't have to be Mother Theresa. You don't have to be Hillary Clinton, Arianna Huffington or Sophia Amoruso. You just have to be the best version of yourself, and you're bound to make a difference in at least one person's life. So I just hope this book inspires you to be your own inspiration." -Mallory Armstrong
I wanted to extend a personal a HUGE thank you to the women who have already said YES to The Inspirational Woman Project. Each of you have inspired me and encouraged me in some way. I am eternally grateful for your belief in the movement and could not have made it through the past eight weeks without each of you!!!
