Answers to your questions.

Who are you?
My name is Allison Barnes. I am a student at Brigham Young University, majoring in Marriage and Family Studies. I love summertime, music, theatre, films, and intimate conversations with friends.

Is this project for school?
No. Writing about womanhood was something that I've wanted to do for a long time, but never felt confident in my ability to fully do so. I am still not capable of capturing womanhood as I'd like to. Instead, various women have graciously accepted the task of writing essays on various topics of womanhood. Additionally, I am asking for any man or woman to submit photographs that portray the divinity of womanhood to them.

How do I submit photos?

Can I submit multiple photos?
Yes, it is encouraged, but keep in mind that we may only select one or two to use in the book.

What is the Campaign to End Fistula, and why donate to this group?
Women are not receiving proper maternal health care in certain areas of the world. This can lead to a condition known as obstetric fistula, which severely limits the quality of life these women experience. With a simply surgery costing merely $300 USD, women have the chance to heal. Every woman should have the opportunity to lead a full, happy life, and that is why I believe in this cause. For more information, click here. Visit the Campaign's website here.

Thank you, thank you for all of the submissions so far! I love the photographs that have been submitted, and I love reading the accompanying stories. They are beautiful, and you are giving this project a deeper significance than I could have ever imagined.
