Paola Gianturco - Grandmother Power
The grandmothers of today are younger, healthier, better educated, and better off than grandmothers have ever been. And, as photojournalist Paola Gianturco shows in her book Grandmother Power: A Global Phenomenon, these women have embraced activism to fight poverty, disease, illiteracy, environmental degradation, and human rights abuses.
For the past 16 years, Gianturco has worked as a photojournalist, documenting women’s lives in fifty-five countries. One hundred percent of the author royalties from this book will go to the Grandmother-to-Grandmother campaign of the Stephen Lewis Foundation in Toronto.
