Description
Paola Gianturco discusses her book, “Celebrating Women.” She begins by explaining that she was amazed to hear about celebrations around the world that had never been recorded in books before and was inspired to create this book so that others could participate in these events. She explores rites of virginity such as the reed dance in Swaziland that takes place once a year in August. Gianturco then explains the order she chose for the book, which contrasted with the order in which she traveled and took the photographs for the book. She goes on to discuss her chapter on women in Peru and the role of women as providers. Later in the interview she explores the topic of the Miss America Pageant.
