We'll be adding more extraordinary women each week.
200 Women is a book and exhibition inspired by a belief that you can’t empower women without listening to their stories. Our subsequent idea was to persuade two hundred women in different parts of the world - whether they be rich or poor, black or white, educated or uneducated, famous or unknown - to sit or stand in front of a plain sheet of fabric and to be photographed and filmed while answering five fundamental questions.
Our goal was not to make a book about just successful and powerful women; those stories are important, but we wanted diversity, and above all, authenticity. Two hundred 'real women', with 'real stories'.
Miranda Tapsell was born in Darwin, Australia. She is a First Nations woman of the Larrakia tribe. Tapsell is best known for her role in The Sapphires – the story of four Indigenous Australian women who travelled to Vietnam in the sixties to perform for United States troops – and her role in the drama series Love Child, which deals with the subject of historical forced adoptions of Indigenous Australian children. In 2015 Tapsell won a Logie award for her performance in Love Child, and, in her acceptance speech, called for more people of colour to appear on television.
