Glamour's Powered By Women Initiative 2017

Read more

In a year where the world is focused on championing women, Glamour launched the Powered by Women initiative, dedicated to supporting female creative talent within the industry and sparking a conversation around gender equality. The initiative debuted in January 2017, and was conceived by Cindi Leive, Editor-in-Chief of US Glamour. In order to mark such a monumental moment in the industry, all 17 editions of Glamour’s November issue have only female talent to produce the special issue. In this way, Glamour supports women in the most meaningful way possible, by hiring them and actively moving the needle within the industry and beyond. Each November cover will also feature the same limited-edition t-shirt designed by Stella McCartney on its cover. The issue will share content including a feature produced collectively by the different editors on the forces impacting women in each country, from maternity leave to culture, including fashion trends. Cindi Leive, Editor-in-Chief of US Glamour commented, “This is going to be a really big moment for the Glamour brand. We’ve made a real concerted effort over the last year to increase the representation of women and all of those roles in the industry. This was our way of getting behind female talent in our own home countries.”
