We’ve all seen it: The picture of the young, fashionable woman, with perfectly sculpted arms, white teeth and a juicy looking cocktail in hand laughing like she’s having the time of her life while talking to a man at a bar. Conversely, we’ve all seen the one of the disheveled woman, looking stressed, hair out-of-place, with a crying child in her arms and an apron around her waist, juggling the telephone and child while standing in the kitchen.

On Monday, in collaboration with LeanIn.org, the nonprofit founded by Sheryl Sandberg with the purpose of empowering women, GettyImages launched a collection of more than 2,500 images of “female leadership in contemporary work and life.” (GettyImages)

This new collection of powerful images of women are hopeful and inspiring to those who believe we can change the world, one picture at a time.
