Review: National Geographic’s Women

Published: Updated:

I’ve never met a National Geographic book I didn’t like, and this one is no different. This collection of stunning photography also includes interviews with many of the influential women pictured.

In one word: BEAUTIFUL!

I highly recommend this collection to anyone interested in this subject matter. I have been paging through this as time allows and so many of these images take my breath away.

I tried to take a few photos, but of course it’s not the same experience as holding this book in your hands!

About Women: The National Geographic Image Collection

• Hardcover: 512 pages
• Publisher: National Geographic (October 15, 2019)

This powerful photography collection, drawn from the celebrated National Geographic archive, reveals the lives of women from around the globe, accompanied by revelatory new interviews and portraits of contemporary trailblazers including Oprah Winfrey, Jane Goodall, and Christiane Amanpour.

#MeToo. #GirlBoss. Time’s Up. From Silicon Valley to politics and beyond, women are reshaping our world. Now, in anticipation of the 100th anniversary of the 19th amendment, this bold and inspiring book from National Geographic mines 130 years of photography to showcase their past, their present, and their future. With 300+ stunning images from more than 50 countries, each page of this glorious book offers compelling testimony about what it means to be female, from historic suffragettes to the haunting, green-eyed “Afghan girl.”

Organized around chapter themes like grit, love, and joy, the book features brand-new commentary from a wide swath of luminaries including Laura Bush, Gloria Allred, Roxane Gay, Melinda Gates, New Zealand prime minister Jacinda Ardern, and the founders of the #MeToo and Black Lives Matter movements. Each is accompanied by a bold new portrait, shot by acclaimed NG photographer Erika Larsen. The ultimate coffee table book, this iconic collection provides definitive proof that the future is female.
