On May 5, 2020, I began a project called the My Life As A Woman Project Initative, in which I made every effort to contact hundreds of women and obtain every country I could possibly reach, including many islands, territories, and all countries. I managed to obtain a story from the Vatican, to North Korea, Cuba, Russia, Pakistan, India, China, Israel, Palestine, Saudi Arabia, and so many more.
Whatever it was, I was determined to reach my goal of contacting a woman from nearly every place on Earth. While it would have been impossible for me to get every single area, I did what I could with what I could. I am not even sure I undertand how I made this project happen, but it happened, because so many women were backing me in wanting to make it happen, see it happen, offer to help to make it happen, and so, it happened. I asked over 1,200 women about themselves, how life and and their governments were treating them, including their challenges along the way and successes as well as any advice they had for other women! As a result of having to network, and try and try, to get stories, I ended up obtaining the stories of over 500 women who were interested.
It is the year 2020 and there is a lot the world may or may not realize about women, of what women are going through, from the very rich the the poverty-stricken, to the stresses of everyday life and work-life balance of having children while still making sure they keep up in the work world. It is not surprising that while men are able to work and do their jobs well, it is women who must work twice as hard as men just to be seen as worthy of being wherever they are in their current place. There were many unexpected stories and since every woman was chosen at random, there was no possible way I could know what these women had to say, but to get a story from them… is advice you can have for a lifetime.
From Princess Charlotte Casiraghi to the Vice President of the Philippines, and Park Yeon-mi, a North Korean defector, to many other women of a variety of professions, women from all walks of life tell their story about what life is like growing up in their country, about what life is growing up with their families, and what life is like growing up with their governments. The response was overwhelming and will make you understand just how strong, resilient, and powerful women really are. There is no doubt about it. While the world needs more women like these women to stand up, fight for what they know is right in their lives, and drive a better world. This book is for everyone, whether you are male, female, young or old… this is an historical book that has never been written before. Own your copy today and share it with your friends and children!
