the UNCATEGORISED: ONE SMALL STEP…

This is a small step but a big improvement. I posted about the lack of representation for darker skinned girls in magazine faves such as Elle and Marie Claire a few months back. Elle Mag responded saying it was an ‘issue’ that had been brought to their attention many times and that they were working to improve the diversity in their editorials. So a Make-up & Skin featurette online is, in my opinion, a good start because women of colour perhaps spend the most on beauty & hair products but are always sidelined. I hope Marie Claire will bring back their small make up section for darker tones soon, because that was the best issue yet. I also hope that during the rest of this year more will be done to represent young women of colour especially British achievers.*

*I bet they have a few Olympic competitor interviews coming up.
