200 Womem: The Listening Ground - Episode 1 - An Introduction

Episode 2 - What matters

The 200 Women project asked women what matters to them. Truth, dignity, the planet and self-belief are just some of the topics women spoke to.

Episode 3 - Life stories 

We all have stories to tell. The 200 Women project found 200 extraordinary life stories from around the world that we can share. Listen as women talk about immigration, the physical challenges of being a girl, the civil rights movement and gender reassignment.

Episode 4 - Happiness 

Whilst we all want to be happy, it turns out that what makes each of us happy is very different. Listen in as women reveal their aspiration to sit around a kitchen table filled with joy, to be creative, to watch others thrive, to find the meaning of life and to help young people among other things.

Episode 5 - Pain 

No one likes to talk about pain. Listen as some extraordinary women talk about stories of breast cancer, the death of a child, depression and witnessing loved ones pass away. 

Episode 6 - Change 

Change is scary but often worth it. In fact for the world to move on, to be propelled forward, change is exactly what we need. Listen to inspiring women talk about the change we still need in terms of gender pay disparity, sexual assault, human rights and women in the workplace. Maybe it will inspire you to be the change that is needed.

Episode 7 - Perspective 

A new perspective is a hard thing to gain, but when found, its lessons are never forgotten. The 200 Women project discovered new perspectives on trauma, religion and acceptance. Truly eye opening.

Episode 8 - Inspiration 

Inspiring someone is one of the greatest gifts you can give. It’s not a tangible thing, you can be inspired to do many things – ethical business, raising awareness, improving people’s living and working conditions or simply to love more. We hope you feel inspired listening.

Episode 9 - A single word 

Could you think of a single word that you most identify with? The 200 Women project asked amazing women from around the world to do just that. Can you guess what they said? We’ll give you a hint – love, trust, hope and courage. Listen in to hear why.
