Want to know the secrets of inspiring women? Ask Levi’s. The jeans brand and Pictory have announced “Secrets of Inspiring Women” — a Levi’s-sponsored photographic showcase celebrating inspirational women on Pictorymag.com.
Inspired by Shape What’s to Come, Levi’s global initiative and web community which is designed to inspire and empower millennial women, photographers were invited to submit self-portraits and tell the story of getting to where they are as a woman, their mentors along the way, how they’re impacting others and share advice for the next generation.[ Also Read: Hot Show for 40 Ways to Better Sex Tonight ]

Photographer Maren Celest joined Laura to guest curate the showcase.
“We are building on this legacy to help young women shape their futures. The Pictory ‘Secrets of Inspiring Women’ photographic showcase is a perfect vehicle for women to share the stories of their inspiration, growth and desire to shape what’s to come,” said Mary Alderete, VP of Levi’s Global Women’s Marketing.[ Also Read: Period and Ovulation Mobile App for Women ]
