If you are fed up with seeing the same type of female body (young, slim and white) on the internet, things are hopefully about to change.

Getty Images, one of the biggest image companies in the world, has partnered with Refinery29 to launch ‘The No Apologies’ image collection which aims to increase the diversity of women’s bodies in the stock pictures it supplies to news outlets. 

“While social conversations have become more inclusive in recent years regarding who is seen, traditional media has been slower to change. We’re excited to expand our partnership with Refinery29 and create a collection together that enables the millennial female experience to be more accurately and unapologetically represented in the editorial space,” Pam Grossman, the director of visual trends at Getty, said.
