Put Aboriginal Australian women on the covers

Fashion magazines such as Vogue, grace their covers with "beautiful" women. However these women, (with only two exceptions: Elaine George in a 1993 Vogue, and Samantha Harris, June 2010 Vogue), do not represent the Aboriginal (traditional owners of the country) women of Australia. This problem encourages further alienation of these people. How are young Aboriginal Australian women going to feel that they are beautiful when the main image of beauty they see is white? Aboriginal Australian women should frequently grace the covers of Vogue, Glamour, Vanity Fair etc, and not just be an occasional, rare token.
