Book Proposal: Phase II

In a follow-up to my post titled “Feedback Requested for Book Proposal”, I am writing to let you know that I have entered Phase II of the proposal, in preparation for pitching the book to publishers.

Phase II is perhaps the most challenging aspect of the proposal, as it requires compiling a comprehensive GLOBAL list of strong, empowered, activist women (who also have a flare and love for fashion!). With your support, I know that I will find these awesome women to be featured in the book!

I ask that you take a look at the country list (see below) and if you know a woman (or two!) who fits the above mentioned profile, that you consider sponsoring her for this project.

Once I have a short biography on each woman, I will begin compiling questions unique to her story/experience. It is my hope that I will be able to find a photographer in every country/city that will support this project by doing a photoshoot with each woman. Depending on whether or not the woman speaks English, I will arrange for translation of the interview questions.

Please keep in mind that I am interested in featuring women of all different ages, races, and sexual orientations. When you send in a woman’s profile, please follow this format:

Name, Age, Occupation, City, Country (attach a short biography and contact information)

Argentina
Australia
Bangladesh
Bolivia
Botswana
Brazil
Cambodia

I don't know anyone in particular in Zimbabwe. But perhaps you can try to send this information to Kubatana.net. You can Google their website and get their contact details. It can be a starting point for Zimbabwe.

Good luck

Just to say...

I love that you change your picture and this one's a gem! Dig the glasses.

Janice,

This picture was taken yesterday during one of my sports games. Every Wednesday, my friends and I play Ultimate Frisbee as part of a city league. It's a great way to enjoy one another's company and keep in shape!

The Jackie-O sunglasses are a must when the sun is shining as brightly as it was -- thought I would send some of that sunshine in the direction of PulseWire ;)
