10 Cliched Stock Photos of Women vs. Lean In’s Alternatives

This article is such a great reminder of how much an image says!


Don’t worry, you’ll never have to laugh alone with salad again.

That’s because Sheryl Sandberg’s LeanIn.org decided to tackle the important issues by debuting a whole new line of stock photos through Getty Images that shows real women doing real things, instead of multi-armed, multitasking octopus women eating yogurt or smiling at scales.

Here is a chronology of your perfect life through the Lean In photos, compared to the yoga-doing, salad-laughing nightmare that would be a life in stock photos. Choose your own adventure.
