Gender

With no men at the top, women stand alone

Elle magazine has realised a video aimed to raise the awareness on the need of speeding up the process towards gender equality.

The British Elle magazine has launched the campaign #MoreWomen. It is aimed to give the right visibility to powerful, successful women and to create a positive dialogue in order to achieve gender equality. To do that, the magazine realised a video that shows how women are in some of the world’s highest and most important positions: they lead governments, organisations, companies. However, there’s still a long way to go to equality.

Elle’s video floors the viewer: it shows, on figures, how men still chair boards of directors, meetings, and power positions. However, by photoshopping them out of the pictures, powerful women are left alone.
