… then we ran out of workers. In an effort to highlight the inequality across different industries, the magazine created this video and the hashtag “#morewomen” in honor of its November Feminism issue. In just 45 seconds, the video illustrates quite dramatically how many instances where women are represented by only a single female. While remaining quite playful, the magazine’s entire movement attempts to change the portrayal of successful women as “selfish,” “competitive,” and “catty.” As the magazine posted:

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.
