In honor of Women’s History Month and International Women’s Day, one Augusta University staff member is using her passion for photography to spotlight some of the women who strengthen our community every day.
“The greatest part of this project was quite simply the women. They drove from all over the CSRA, some an hour or more, to take a quick 3-minute photo and share their incredibly heartwarming stories,” said Beckworth, reflecting on the project.
“In these images, you’ll find resources for help if you are struggling with mental illness, addiction and domestic violence. It’s amazing that this project started out as a way of celebrating women and turned into great information on how to help people that may not otherwise have known where they could turn. I have been humbled by every single story and am grateful to the 67 women who showed up believing in this project!”
“Here’s to all the incredible women out there: May we know them, may we be them,” said Beckworth.
