Recently, Lean In and Getty Images co-created an image library devoted to the powerful depiction of women, girls and the people who support them.
“Women are the primary users of social media… that’s an immense amount of control for the first time in history,” says Pam Grossman, Director of Visual Trends at Getty Images. Because women are dominating the conversation, “it’s shifting the ways in which we’re sharing images of ourselves.”
Getty Images is proud to present the Lean In Collection, which features more than 2,500 images of female leadership in contemporary work and life. A portion of proceeds will go toward grants for images showcasing female empowerment.

BuzzFeed has the hottest, most social content on the web. They posted this video created by Lean In and Getty Images. Check out their article where Getty’s Pamela Grossman and Cosmopolitan’s editor-in-chief talk about changing stock images of women in media.
Lean In is committed to offering women the ongoing inspiration and support to help them achieve their goals. If we talk openly about the challenges women face and work together, we can change the trajectory of women and create a better world for everyone.
