This video Photoshops men out of famous workplaces and it’s striking

Things look pretty stark once you take away the men.

A VIDEO BY the magazine Elle UK released this week has sparked an interesting debate on women in the workplace.

It’s taken some really famous women at work

And removed the men from the pictures

The description on the YouTube video sums up the aim of the project:

There are too many instances where women are represented by a single female. In business, music, art and media, women rarely outnumber men.

So Elle has started the #MoreWomen campaign
