An Le, the photographer responsible for cropping out Lupita Nyong’o’s natural hair on the cover of Grazia, has apologised
'I cannot condone this omission.'

Until Grazia tell Martha's story to their readers, they'll be known as Grrrrazia in the welfare world. Just imagine if they paid to give her a full pampering before featuring her on their glamorous pages? Could one of their readers find space on their impossibly stylish Habitat sofas? Or even their Ikea ones....
Eventually Grazia issued a very tight-lipped 82 word 'response' that apologised for the offence caused but didn't say sorry for making backyard breeding seem hip and trendy. The few hundred angry folk started breeding and became thousands.
Pay transparency is a simple measure, but sometimes simple changes are the most powerful. Once implemented, employers of over 250 workers will have to publish details of the average pay of their male and female employees, meaning for the first time, women will be able to see if they are being paid less than their male colleagues. Women still earn on average just 81p for every male pound and the rate at which the pay gap is closing has slowed under this government. In fact, if we'd continued to make the same progress we were under Labour women working full-time might be over £100 a year better off.
This week I and many others in the Labour Party have joined readers of Grazia magazine to write to the Business Secretary to ask him to implement pay transparency. This measure would see large companies of over 250 employees publish the pay gap between the hourly wages of men and women on an annual basis.
