About The Goddess Project

The Goddess Project is a documentary film sharing inspiring stories from women across the United States. Determined to create more representation for women in media, 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 women in the United States face today.

The film is recommended for ages 12 and older and covers topics such as negative effects of the media, trauma, and abuse, but is focused on some of the ways individuals can heal from these experiences. Other themes that the documentary covers includes taking the leap, traveling, aging and embracing life, and diversity and role models.
