The NYT Put An Unfortunate Ad Next To Its Story About Lean In Fixing How Women Are Represented In Stock Photos (NYT) – February 10, 2014 at 07:01PM

The New York Times has a great story by Claire Cain Miller about how Sheryl Sandberg’s feminist organization, Lean In, is working with Getty Images to fix how women are represented in stock photography.

Getty’s stock photos now show women in modern business settings, men doing domestic work, and girls at computers. It’s also ditching the woman-in-a-boxy-power-suit look.

Unfortunately, on NYT.com, the Claire Cain Miller story has an image next to it that is a perfect example of how media objectifies women. She’s basically the product being advertised.

Take a look:
