    The 45 Most Ridiculous Stock Photos Of Women

    Because we do so much more than just laughing with salad.

    While Getty's "Lean In Collection" hopes to change the way we view women through diversifying stock photography – there is still a long way to go. Here are the most absurdly sexist stock images representing the different aspects of women's lives, all of which were search results for the following words and phrases:

    "Women working".

    Women are often very aroused by their careers and find climbing the corporate ladder stimulating. Clothing is optional.

    "Women playing sports".

    ThinkStock / Kladyk
    ThinkStock / kurga
    ThinkStock / biglike

    Ah yes, the classic female pastimes of "bucket squat", "ball hump", and "measuring waist".

    "Women watching sports".

    ThinkStock / diego cervo
    ThinkStock / Werner Heiber

    Mainly just butts and rolling pins.

    "Female friendships".

    Yay! Let's touch each other!

    "Women eating".

    Not so much "eating" as just holding things to your pouty lips.

    "Women getting married".

    ShutterStock / essensys Ltd

    Weddings = super sexy.

    "Married life" and "relationships".

    So being a woman in a relationship means there will be casual domestic violence and constant nagging.

    Definitely what the fight for equality looks like.

    "Single woman".

    Mostly just standing in fields.

    "Women travelling".

    ThinkStock / Creationphoto

    Not so much travelling as just posing with severe camel toe.

    "Lesbian relationships".

    ThinkStock / GeloKorol
    ThinkStock / marcogarrincha
    ThinkStock / Gromovataya

    Glamorous watermelons and screaming!

    "Successful woman".

    Because success for a woman is losing weight, looking sexy, and FINALLY being able to lay naked in faux fur. Who says you can't have it all?
