New Stock Photography Collection Aims to Empower Women

The stock photo giant Getty Images has teamed up with women’s leadership organization Lean In to create a collection of images depicting strong, empowered women. The collection contains over 2,500 images of women and girls of all ages and walks of life, at work and at play, who are confident, hardworking, and happy:

Lean In, an organization created by Facebook’s Sheryl Sandberg after her book of the same title, encourages women to believe in themselves and their ability to move forward in their careers, while challenging the world at large to be more welcoming to female leadership. The goal behind the collection is to further this message by saturating the world with as many images of driven, confident women as possible. A portion of the proceeds from the collection will go to the creation of Getty Images grants for photographers, and to supporting the Lean In mission.

The Lean In collection strives to show women in strong roles.

The images that we see on television, in magazines, and in advertisements have an undeniable effect on how we see the world. Though we still have a long way to go before we achieve gender equality, the Lean In collection is a step in the right direction.
