In January 2018, photographer and author Paola Gianturco came to New Mexico to celebrate the publication of the final book in her trilogy on global women activists. “Wonder Girls” features 15 girl-led groups in 13 countries – including Creativity for Peace – addressing gender inequality, environmental issues, child trafficking, education and war.
Paola spoke to students from Bosque School, Santa Fe Prep, Desert Academy and the MASTERS program as well as public audiences in Albuquerque and Santa Fe, encouraging all to follow their passion and improve their world.
The book, which is full of compelling photos and inspiring stories, is available for sale and makes a wonderful gift for the girls in your life. If you live in the Santa Fe area and would like to purchase directly from us, profits will benefit our work. Paola (and co-author Alex Sangster, her 11-year-old granddaughter) is donating 100% of author royalties to the Global Fund for Women.
Great appreciation to Paola and to Jill Heppenheimer for their many contributions to this project and our work.
