As Within So Without

Elle UK #MoreWomen campaign creates an uproar.


Elle Magazine UK made headlines last week when it released a video that depicted just how lonely it is at the top for women. 

Hashtag more women

To show the under-representation of women in positions of power, Elle UK erased the men out of several photos taken at various gatherings of influential leaders in politics, business, art, and media worldwide. 

Elle UK said they got the idea to create the video in 2014 after a speech Emma Watson gave at the United Nations- condemning gender inequality.

Check out the video. What do you think? Is there gender inequality? Is there anything we can do to fix it?
