Reuters Billboard in Times Square will unveil the cover of Fearless Women, Visions of a New World, the latest book in renowned photographer MaryAnn Halpin ‘s Fearless Women book series. This extraordinary book, and accompanying multi-artist CD, contains photographic portraits, as well as inspiring stories of 50 fearless women who are taking action to make the world a better place.
Halpin traveled the US in 2011 photographing women who have sought to create a better world. “More and more women are feeling called upon to do something bigger than themselves and are responding in amazing ways,” says Halpin. “When I first began this project, I wanted to create a book that captured a vision of the healing work these remarkable women are doing. This book is my way of chronicling their brave vision. I feel so proud and honored to have had the opportunity to share their stories with the world. I had no idea that my Fearless Women® books would create a movement all over the globe!”
Many of the featured women are leaders in the human potential movement and inspirational teachers; Mona Polacca, one of the 13 Indigenous Grandmothers, along with celebrities/activists Linda Gray and Frances Fisher . Women change-makers such as Rebecca Grossman , founder of the Grossman Burn Foundation; Dr. Doreen Granpeesheh , foremost authority on autism; Tabitha Kyambadde , founder of African Mission Outreach Organization; and our cover girl, Lt. Col. (ret) Karen Mertes , who after being struck by a drunk driver and during her recovery from brain trauma, founded Fulfill Your Destiny, dedicated to helping those who have had a similar life altering event.
Evolving out of the Fearless Women® series is Fearless Women Global, an international company with a mission to inspire, motivate, educate and connect women business owners and organizational leaders through its community, events, products, and services to create a platform for many non-profit activities. The ultimate goal is to connect a billion fearless women around the world to inspire and encourage global action to make the world a better place.
