Eva McGauley wurde in Wellington, Neuseeland, geboren. Schon mit 13 Jahren engagierte sie sich im Wellington Rape Crisis Centre, das Frauen und Mädchen, die Opfer sexueller Gewalt wurden, unterstützt.
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'.
