What Do We See If We Remove Men From Political Photos

Even though many strides have been made to bring an equilibrium between the sexes, the politic arena is still a male dominated arena. What do we see if we remove men from political photos? Well, pretty much an empty photo with just one or two women here and there.

Now even if these photos don’t show it, Rwanda is the country with the most women in politics in the world. It is surprising to see that an African country is in the lead on this one, but not bad news in any case. Not to mention that these women do great things over there.

Nevertheless, to highlight this disparity, the ELLE UK magazine removed all the men in the pictures of politicians, leaving the meeting rooms and assemblies looking a bit deserted.

“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,” reads the #MoreWomen campaign page on Elle. 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.”
