Women are Heroes is an extraordinary book. In order to share the stories of women struggling in their everyday lives, French artist JR went on a journey. He travelled to places like Sierra Leone, Liberia, Sudan, Kenya, Brazil, India and Cambodia to seek these women out. This was a global project with the end goal of taking the stories of struggling women, and spreading them around the world through his art. He accomplished this by pasting mural sized portraits on the sides of buildings, on trains, and on bridges to bring a "haunting human presence to harsh environments of social conflict".
This beautifully illustrated book will inspire you, and others around the world.
