Getty Presents: Lean In, a powerful depiction of women
Sheryl Sandberg and Co. want us to start viewing women more positively. A lot of which starts with literally just seeing images of them as empowered, and not as neurotic, bitchy, housewife, corporate, skank hybrids. Partnering with Getty Images, they’ve introduced a collection of stock photos to use in lieu of said psycho female tropes. From the Getty website:
We are proud to present the Lean In Collection, a library of images devoted to the powerful depiction of women, girls and the people who support them. Jointly curated by Getty Images and LeanIn.Org – the women’s empowerment nonprofit founded by Sheryl Sandberg – the collection features over 2,500 images of female leadership in contemporary work and life.
A portion of proceeds from the Lean In Collection will go toward the creation of Getty Images grants for images showcasing female empowerment and to supporting the mission of LeanIn.Org.
These are some of the new stock photos you can look forward to seeing online.
