It's hard to look at Annie Griffiths' photos and not feel inspired. Over the last two decades, she has dedicated a portion of her time to document the important work of aid organizations -- specifically the role of empowered women in these organizations.

As one of the first women photographers to ever work for National Geographic, Annie Griffiths knows what it means to defy stereotypes and gender hardships. Now the executive director of Ripple Effect, as well as a photographer, she has shot more than 15,000 photos in over 13 countries, giving a voice to 22 aid programs and helping raise more than a million dollars for their aid partners. Annie Griffiths' portraits are accompanied by the women's stories, making them even more powerful.
