You can’t be what you can’t see. Two years ago, we launched the Lean In Collection on @GettyImages—a library of thousands of creative images devoted to changing the portrayal of women and girls in media and advertising. Since the collection launched, it has grown from 2,500 to 6,000 photos that are used by marketers all over the world. Now it’s time for phase two. Today, we are thrilled to announce the launch of the Lean In Collection on @istockbygettyimages, an affordable counterpart to the original collection that is accessible to budgets of all kinds and open to photographer submissions. Let’s proclaim the end of women laughing alone with salad and walking up ladders in stiletto heels. Here’s to closing the gender gap, one image at a time. #LeanIn #RePictureWomen A photo posted by Sheryl Sandberg (@sherylsandberg) on
