Earlier this week, Getty and Leanin.org announced a partnership whereby Getty donates 10% of license fees to LeanIn.org from sales of this collection.

This got us thinking and we wondered about sources of imagery of women, so we compiled a list of resources that we know of and use. When looking for dynamic and diverse images of contemporary women, please remember these dynamite collections/agencies too:

SheStock
ImageSource
Monkeybusiness
Blend
Erickson Stock
Queerstock

By the way, most of these sources are partially/wholly owned by female entrepreneurs.

The stock industry has a history of female trailblazers who have been leaning in for generations: Ellen Boughn, Susan Turneau, Beate Chelette, Cathy Aron, Sonia Wasco, Jane Kinne, Danita Delimont, Lady Harriet Bridgeman and Sally Lloyd to name just a small handful.

Who are some of your favorite boutique sources?
