A new, unheralded global grandmothers movement is changing the world. Activist grandmothers are using their power to fight for peace, justice, human rights and a better world for grandchildren everywhere. And they are succeeding. This book includes 120 grandmothers’ stories in 15 countries on five continents.
Photojournalist Paola Gianturco has documented women’s lives in 55 countries and has now created five books as philanthropic projects.
Her images have been exhibited at the United Nations, UNESCO, The US Senate, The Field Museum/Chicago, The International Museum of Women / San Francisco, The Museum of the African Diaspora/San Francisco, The Norton Simon Museum, Pasadena, and the Smithsonian Folklife Festival, Washington DC. She has appeared on the Oprah Winfrey Show, CNN and NPR. Her pictures have been published in Marie Claire, Harpers Bazaar, The New York Times and The Washington Post.
