Because It’s 2015, I Demand More

November 9, 2015
Because it’s 2015, I can’t see these pictures and not act. Because it’s 2015, you can’t sit by anymore either. Because it’s 2015, we can’t let ourselves say “but I like being the #2.” The powerful images put out by Elle UK were all too familiar. They featured some of the most recognizable global...
