New collection challenges women stock photo cliches
A stressed woman, dressed in an expensive suit, struggles to hold a baby under one arm and a briefcase in the other. Is this your idea of a “working mother”? If so, maybe you’ve seen too many stock photos. A new collection of stock images has been launched, aiming to challenge cliched stereotypical ideas of womanhood. Jessica Bennett is a journalist and contributing editor at the organisation 'Lean In' which helped curate the collection.
