The New York Times

Since 1851, obituaries in The New York Times have been dominated by white men (just 20 percent have been women). Overlooked is a project to write the obituaries for the women who never got them, but should have. Women like Diane Arbus, the photographer, and Ida B. Wells, the journalist, as well as the novelist Charlotte Bronte. 

This project is being developed into a scripted anthology from Paramount.




45 Stories of Sex and Consent on Campus
The New York Times

In 2018, as stories of sexual misconduct dominated the news, a debate erupted over a particular kind of encounter: one that may not be entirely consensual, but does not necessarily fit the definition of sexual assault, either. We asked college students around the world to share their stories of navigating that murky area of sexual consent.

Cofounder & Curator

Launched in 2015, this was an ongoing partnership between Getty Images & aimed at changing the depiction of women in stock photography (in other words: no more women laughing alone with salad). With 10,000 images and counting, the idea was to put women in the foreground not the background; to break down gender stereotypes for women and men, and to diversify imagery by race, gender identity and other categories. The project won the Infinity Award from the International Center of Photography.
