This collection of photos from the “lean in” collection are supposed to be “photos of female leadership in contemporary work and life,” but they just look like women to me. If I was going to group them I’d probably say “conservative, mostly middle class women”. I’d love to hear why people think they’re in any way “different” than … well normal women that aren’t leaning in? Is the implication that most people don’t know women who weld? Or know how to use a hammer? Or work on computers in the design industry? Or have kids or husbands? Or in the case of the fishing photo “stand in a clean apron next to some guy actually doing all the work”?
I mean, they’re nice pictures of middle class women, don’t get me wrong, but I don’t get how that’s “leaning in” or “inspiring”. They’re just normal people, or is that the point?
