How Starling Bank’s new campaign highlights the demeaning way women are portrayed in financial imagery

“You can’t be what you can’t see.” This quote is commonly attributed to Marian Wright Edelman, the US civil rights activist, and many others have used it to underscore the need for diverse role models who can inspire women, ethnic minorities, and other under-represented groups in public life.
