  1. The What I See Project is a global exploration of women’s perception and self-expression. The Project examines how different experiences shape who we are and how we perceive ourselves and the world around us.

    The What I See Features Series is a range of mini-documentaries in which we highlight women who we have found particularly thought-provoking, inspiring and engaging.Over the course of the Series, we will try to feature women from all walks of life to show how many women are inspirations and powerful role models in their own unique ways.

  2. The What I See Project (whatiseeproject.com) is a global exploration of women’s perception and self-expression. The Project examines how different experiences shape who we are and how we perceive ourselves and the world around us.

    The beauty and power behind What I See lies in how people express themselves and the ability to explore and compare these perspectives across age, location and other factors. Whether it is through video, imagery, written text or tweets; it is a community project that women help create through the power of their voice along with the voices of others across the world. There's no agenda, angle or campaign here—just a collection of individual points of view that grows and changes with your participation.

    Dr Terri Apter is a psychologist, author and Senior Tutor at Newnham College, Cambridge. Her books on family dynamics, identity and relationships have received international acclaim. She began her career as a novelist in her 20s, ‘The idea of being able to put into words how you saw other people, what you were thinking. That seemed to me to offer the utmost magic’.

    She gradually began to look further into human development, realising that;
    ‘When you looked at what psychology had offered before in terms of theory of adolescent development, all you were getting was a story of male adolescent development’.

    This was the beginning of her widely successful career exploring female transition to adulthood, relationships between sisters and learning how to get along with your in-laws. Her work Altered Loves: Mothers and Daughters During Adolescence was a New York Times Notable Book of the Year and she has gone on to write critically-acclaimed books on the transition to adulthood, relationships between sisters and learning how to get along with your in-laws.

    Terri is the first person to be introduced in the What I See Features series – a range of mini-documentaries in which we highlight women who we have found particularly thought-provoking, inspiring and engaging. Over the course of the series, we will try to feature women from all walks of life to show how many women are inspirations and powerful role models in their own unique ways.
