Debra Jenson serves as the chair of the Ordain Women communications committee.

It’s nearly 18 months since the Elle UK #MoreWomen campaign and the photos are still fresh in my mind’s eye. The first photo I saw in this series was of Emma Watson at the United Nations: she is sitting, first surrounded by men, and then once the men have been photoshopped out, she sits alone. With the recent attention on Ms. Watson for her new film Beauty and the Beast the photo of her, a single figure in the UN chambers, has come back to me often.

Emma Watson, apparently sitting alone in the UN Chamber. (Men have been photo-shopped out of the picture.)

If you haven’t had a chance to see the campaign, please take a moment to view the images and ask yourself if it isn’t time for us to see the possibilities of women in leadership?
