The Inspirational Woman Project was born out of Bri Seeley's eponymous fashion line, which was focused on inspiring real women in their passions, businesses, personal lives, and more. It was a fashion brand to help women BE women. But what Seeley found was that women were not comfortable stepping into their femininity and embodying their womanhood. This inspired a 31 day blog series wherein women were interviewed about what it meant to be a woman, when they feel most feminine, and their favorite thing about being a woman. Two weeks into this series, Seeley was inspired to expand the project into a coffee table book and a movement.
Seeley conducted 99 interviews over a course of 8-weeks for the coffee table book content. Shortly after concluding the interviews, the project was launched on Kickstarter and after successfully raising $15,000 in five weeks the transcript was sent off to the printer. It was exactly six months between the first interview on 7/7/2014 and the delivery of 500 books on 1/7/2015.
Since the delivery of the books, Seeley has been working diligently on expanding the project into a movement. There are many developments in the works (including a second volume of the book!), so be sure to stay connected with the project through their website (www.briseeley.com) and social media.
"The Inspirational Woman Project believes that every woman is inspirational - it's our mission to tell their stories!"
