STORIES AND INSIGHT FROM WOMEN SHAPING THE WORLD

67 WOMEN CHANGING THE WORLD

We understand our world through stories; they are the foundation of our culture and our history. For too long women have played supporting parts in these narratives, but at The Female Lead, women are centre stage. Through the collected stories we hope above all to show young women the countless routes to fulfilment and success.

Together our female leads, who range in age, background, career, nationality, race, and beliefs, demonstrate that no one journey is right or successful. They are living proof that we must find our own paths and question the traditional options that women have been granted until now.

60 FEMALE LEADS

In 2017, The Female Lead launched its eponymous book, profiling 60 remarkable women from around the world. The book comprises powerful, original photography by Brigitte Lacombe, alongside interviews by world-class journalists. As part of the project, in-depth video interviews with each woman were shot by documentary maker Marian Lacombe. These intimate moving portraits take us closer to each women's journey, allowing us into her thoughts and enabling her to tell her story in her own voice.
