The purpose of the project is to represent female athletes as role models as well as showing the athletic potential of women by celebrating diversity in body types. The Rio addition to the project was possible as the result of a successful Kickstarter campaign run during the Olympics. It received incredible media coverage from Wired, The Chicago Tribune, HOW, Print, GOOD, The Sydney Morning Herald, Forbes, Upworthy, A Mighty Girl and NATO's Chapter for Women. The project includes a book, poster, interactive website and short animation.
