Yes, Beyonce obviously runs the world, but she was actually referring to us girls in RUN THE WORLD. (And if you haven’t seen the behind-the-scenes for this—you’re fucking up. BEYONCE IS QUEEN and made me cry.)
My persuasion can build a nation
Endless power, with our love we can devour
You’ll do anything for me
Who run the world? Girls!
Who run this motha? Girls!
Well, actually this is my new favorite line but I OBVIOUSLY don’t say the “n-word”. “I think I need a barber. None of these niggas can fade me.”
I’ve decided that Beyonce and Sheryl Sandberg need to be friends ASAP. Sheryl is a super badass woman who also happens to be the chief operating officer of Facebook. She wrote a book (and founded a non-profit) called, Lean In, that empowers all women to achieve their ambitions.
Lean In partnered with Getty Images, inspiring them to finally get their shit together and feature more than 2,500 photos highlighting female leadership in contemporary work and life, and the people who support them.
These two are also good.
A portion of proceeds from the Lean In Collection will go toward the creation of Getty Images grants for images showcasing female empowerment and to supporting the mission of LeanIn.Org.
“The most important thing for us is that you felt like the woman had agency, not like the image was happening to her, but she was the protagonist of her own story — they all should feel like the hero of their image,” Pam Grossman, the director of visual trends at Getty Image, said,
In addition, “we paid careful attention to make sure the images were diverse, not just in terms of race, but also in age, family situation, and career,” said Bennett. Notably, the collection also features men actively participating in what may be seen as nontraditional male roles.
Grossman said she hopes to continue adding images to the project each month.
“My hope is that internally our photographers will see these stories and it will inspire them to create even more [positive images of women],” she said.
I do love how ridiculous and not correct Getty Images are though. It brought things to life like Getty Critics. Let’s just take a quick trip down memory lane of women on “normal” Getty Images…
Search: Women working
To be fair, this actually clearly depicts a normal day at work for me.
Just the usual day at work…
I mean, she is pretty.
Why would you give your son a megaphone if you work from home and have 3 kids?
