Meet your Lifestyle & Beauty Editors
There has been a shift in the type of women that have been represented within mainstream media in recent years. However, there is still numerous advancements needed in order for the underrepresented to become widely represented in online media. It's strange and ironic that the underrepresented are often the original trendsetters; whose contributions to Mainstream/online media trends go unrecognised and under-appreciated. We live in a diverse and ever changing world; yet cover girls, the standard of beauty, lifestyles and love are all portrayed in the media in one Caucasian ideological worldview.
