THE ROAD TRIP DOCUMENTARY DRIVING WOMEN'S EMPOWERMENT FORWARD
Determined to empower the feminine voice, two filmmakers packed their lives into a school bus and hit the road for what became the most transformative adventure of their lives.
Through powerful conversations with over 100 women from different walks of life, The Goddess Project gives an intimate look into the collective experience that many women face today.
Some of the topics covered in the film are self-discovery, travel, menstruation, sisterhood, the media & its influence, healing from trauma & abuse, creativity, sustainability and pursuing your dreams.
