I’ve had the good fortune of shooting a lot of women over the past few years, and getting to know each of them has been both fun and enlightening.  All smart, all strong, all ambitious – and all feminine and female in their own unique way.

It’s made me think of all those slogans we’ve heard for years – “we’ve come a long way baby” and “I am woman, hear me roar.”  Do those words still have meaning - or maybe even more meaning – today?

Six months ago, I started asking these women what it means to be a woman in 2015.  There have been 15 women in all, and each were asked the same dozen or so questions.  I didn't go in with any assumptions or projections.  Just curiosity.

Over the next few days, I’ll share their answers.  In the meantime - we have, indeed, come a long way.  But don't call us baby.
