About Cameron Russell

Cameron Russell has always been interested in exposing truths in the world around her, especially in the fashion industry where she works. For years, the Columbia University graduate used social media platforms to tackle issues like racial and gender inequality and the environment, but she made headlines in 2017 after launching #MyJobShouldNotIncludeAbuse on her Instagram feed. Using the hashtag, her 110K+ followers and others can view stories about photographers sexually assaulting or harassing models or employees in the fashion industry during shoots, job interviews, or in lewd messages. The attention led to her gaining over 30K followers in just three weeks after first posting with the hashtag, providing an even bigger platform to spread her message.
