The Goddess Project: What It's Like to Cross the Country Filming Women
Our goal was to film as many women as possible who were living their dreams, going through at least 30 states across the country. When we hit the road, we had originally planned on finding women through word of mouth and social media—but everywhere we went, we encountered individuals eager to share their stories. We met people at gas stations, in parking lots, at coffee shops, and even on Twitter while driving on the highway! By the end of our 10,000-mile journey, we visited a diverse range of communities, and we sat down with over 100 women who bravely shared their unique stories of realizing their potential, overcoming their fears, and working to better themselves and the world around them.
Everywhere we went, people welcomed us with open arms. At each goddess bus stop, men and women approached us to recommend an amazing women for us to film. The only negative thing we experienced was the constant echo of the words “Be careful,” as there is this fear that it is unsafe to travel alone as women. We slept in parking lots, along mountaintops, and on city streets—but in the end, we are happy to report back that the most notable experiences to date were love notes from kind strangers and creative offers for showers and meals.
