Welcome to the Fearless Women Revolution!

Hello to All my wonderful, Family, Friends and Colleagues. . . . I have been selected to be in the below referenced book . . .which is amazing!! And terrifying!! Please read the Press Release context and my comments and picture at the bottom and let me know if you have any ideas.

Welcome to the Fearless Women Revolution!

In her extraordinary photography book, Fearless Women, Fearless Wisdom, internationally acclaimed author and photographer Mary Ann Halpin has brought together 40 female entrepreneurs from across the country to celebrate their courage and strength in having worked through their fears to achieve great personal and professional success. With the release date of June 22, 2010 the launch of Fearless Women, Fearless Wisdom will be celebrated throughout summer to culminate in a national event in major cities like New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Dallas/Ft. Worth, Chicago, Calgary, Toronto and many more.

After the publication of her book, Fearless Women, Midlife Portraits, Mary Ann was inundated with letters from women all over the country who wanted to experience the empowerment of their own personal portraits. This desire prompted the idea of Fearless Women, Fearless Wisdom. This fine-art coffee table book of 40 women each holding a sword of courage, reveals the stories of how they have transformed their challenges into triumphs. The book represents women who have overcome childhood trauma, physical and emotional illness, and near financial devastation. These courageous women are mirrors and examples for us all. Their stories show us that in order to create conscious change within, we must face our fears and walk through them.

Following each story is a Fearless Wisdom quote that imparts a heartfelt belief and a soul-inspiring gift. The back of the book holds a dedication page for a fearless friend, sister or mother to place their picture and share their own fearless experience.

The women adorned on the pages of this book will use its promotion as a vehicle to raise awareness and support for their most impassioned cause and beloved charity. An annual “Fearless Women Day” is being created in honor of the 90th anniversary of the 19th Amendment being ratified, which gave women the right to vote. On this day, August 26th, 2010, selected women from all over the country and Canada, will be given a Fearless Women - Susan B. Anthony Award to celebrate her fearless contribution to the world. The ultimate goal of the award is not only to honor the selected fearless woman, but also to support her dream and help her gain closer access to her goals.

About Mary Ann Halpin
Mary Ann passionately focuses her lens on women's issues. Her first book, Pregnant Goddesshood: A Celebration of Life, has garnered national attention for its powerful images. However, controversial at the time, Mary Ann portrayed pregnant women as radiant and beautiful beings and encouraged them to embrace and celebrate their pregnant bodies with a commemorative portrait. Her photography book blazed the trail and inspired photographers to create maternity portraits that are continuously popular with expectant moms today. Images from Pregnant Goddesshood have been featured in LIFE magazine. Mary Ann has appeared on television shows such as The View, Inside Edition, Extra, and A Baby Story where the book sparked heated national discussion. As a leader in her field, she has been featured on the hit reality show “Starting Over” where she can be seen generously mentoring a young photographer who tragically lost her mother on 9/11.

Her second publication, Fearless Women: Midlife Portraits, contains compelling black and white portraits of women holding swords who have dared to approach aging with passion and fearlessness. This book features celebrities such as Joni Mitchell, Cybill Shepherd, Erin Brockovich, and many other extraordinary women.

Continuing with the “Fearless” theme, Mary Ann has served as a speaker on the “Fearless Women Panel” at eWomenNetwork International Business Convention in Dallas 2008-2009. After photographing over 130 women at the conference, she was inspired to create Fearless Women, Fearless Wisdom.

With 25,000 members strong, the groundswell of the revolution has already begun and is taking America by storm. The women featured in the book hail from cities such as: New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Phoenix, Dallas/Ft. Worth, Houston, High Point, Austin, Nashville, Tampa, St. Petersburg, Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, Washington DC, Kansas City, Seattle, St. Louis, Minneapolis, Chicago, Boulder, Calgary and Toronto. They are all eager to share their stories.

We invite you to be a part of the revolution!

. . .I am the only woman in North Carolina and we are all looking for ideas to promote the book and I, for the “Fearless Women Day” in North Carolina. If any of you have ideas or media contacts throughout North Carolina (as well as the United States and/or Canada), I/we would be greatly appreciative. We have a few great ideas and have approached ABC’s Good Morning America, who is very interested, but this revolution needs to also be in every major (and minor) city throughout, to celebrate women (mothers, wives, daughters, sisters, friends, etc.). We need ideas for the nominees for the “Fearless Women Day” in each city that wants to be involved - and especially in North Carolina! We are obviously trying to raise funds for our individual charity through book sales. I will have 75 books with my picture on the cover for $30 each, but have unlimited access of books with Pam, our “cover girl” above. I am still trying to connect with my chosen charity to see if they are interested in being involved, but if there are any suggestions, I am somewhat open. I welcome all feedback and information. Please feel free to share this email if you have contacts that may be interested in a project such as this. I am also looking for Bookstore(s) that may want to participate in our promotion(with Pam on the cover). Please also contact me to find out if your city is planning to be involved. Thank you for your time and attention!

Fearlessly yours,
