A graphic designer has taken a stand against inequality by taking the “sexist” cover of a magazine targeting teenage girls and transforming it into something incredible.
Katherine Young created the new cover after noticing the stark contrast between Girls’ Life magazine and Boys’ Life magazine, namely that the girls’ magazine largely focuses on appearance, while the boys’ magazine is all about encouraging young men to “explore their future” and aim high.
Putting her graphic skills to work, Katherine swapped out the cover girl for Olivia Hallisey, the 2015 Google Science Fair Grand Prize winner, and photoshopped in some new, inspired and empowering headlines. The result? A magazine cover that offers girls better alternatives to tips on how to “wake up pretty.”
Girls’ Life… are you listening?
