Internationally renowned women's magazine Elle UK recently released their feminism issue, and one of the photo editorials they included sent a powerful message. Here's what the magazine had to say:
The story of how women in positions of strength continually support and empower each other is consistently ignored, while the myth that we pit ourselves against each other perpetuates. We want to change this narrative in our feminism issue and create a more positive conversation – to reflect the power of women, and to support and grow each other as we push for global equality.
The photos below showcase what politics and global leadership would look like if men were erased from the picture entirely. What's left is a stark reminder of just how few women are actually in power in worldwide government -- sad, but totally true.
