We’ve been campaigning to #MakeMoneyEqual. We started by showing how women and men are spoken to differently about money. Now we want to make sure women are better represented in images used by media and advertisers. We’ve teamed up with Lensi Photography to create a new image bank of 100 photographs that better represents women and money, according to the findings from Brunel University.
