The Why Women Project is a women's empowerment community inspired by real women and everyday activists. We’re professional writers, editors, photographers, producers and filmmakers who work in media (and give a $*&! about human rights), and we're telling stories of women who are mobilizing on a massive scale, at an individual level.

“People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills . . . There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his own mind. . . . So constantly give yourself this retreat, and renew yourself.”
