We're celebrating the everyday woman of colour! We're working on an exciting new project called Thru Her Lens. From May 1st to June 3rd, we are asking women to submit a photo of a woman of colour (Asian, Black, LatinX, South Asian) and to let us know why she is beautiful. We want to see dark, medium and all types of skin shades captured.
