Stock photos finally get a grip

Through an exciting new partnership between Getty Images and  the awesome organization Lean In, 2,500 new stock photos will be produced that ignore stereotypical gender roles. When you search stock photos for bosses you get men. When you search moms you get angry mothers with crying babies or women struggling to multitask. When you search women at work you get outdated photos of women carrying briefcases. Getty and Lean In have provided new photos that show modern and diverse women carrying out all types of roles. These women are not all thin white models. These women much better represent the women of today. See more of the pictures here
