We are incredibly proud to officially launch Au•then•tic. This has been an amazing project, an inspirational journey for us, and an honour.
Au•then•tic is a collection of real stories from remarkable women that describe what it is like to be them in their life, right at this very moment. The stories captured within these pages are unedited. They represent the purest collection of stories from women of all ages from all over the world. These women have participated in this project of their own free will and to support a project with a noble intention. We have no preconceived objectives of this project, other than it being a gift for the current and future generations of women. We hope that it will provide a sense of identity, of connectedness and provide insight into the feelings, sensibilities and learnings we experience as we dance through life.
Our working title has been The Modern Women’s Anthology but borne out of the beautiful voices of the women who are the essence of this book, Au•then•tic took form. Our deepest thanks to these courageous women for their generosity in sharing and delving into places that are genuine and raw.
It has been an honour to work on this collaboration with an amazing 45 women, ranging in age from 20-74, representing 10 countries across five continents. To the women who contributed, you are truly courageous, powerful beings with beautiful hearts.
Never grow a wishbone, daughter, where your backbone ought to be.—Sarah McMane
