Empowering images of women

A woman laughing alone with salad. It’s one of the most common types of images that appears when you search for "women" in a stock photography collection. Frankly, the image is just one example of how women have long been portrayed in a stereotypical, sexist fashion.


It’s time for change. Sheryl Sandberg's LeanIn organization has paired up with Getty Images to produce a photo collection that represent women and girls in more empowering ways.


We’d like to invite women to share a photo of themselves at their most empowering moment. Whether you scaled a mountain, gave birth to a child or broke a personal record during a race, we’d love to hear the story behind that inspiring moment. (Tip: Send us a horizontal image for the best look -- vertical photos are a no-no).


The best photos could be part of CNN Leading Women’s coverage for International Women’s Day March 8.
