Democratic presidential candidate and author Marianne Williamson responded to being left out of Vogue magazine photoshoot profiling all of the women running for president in 2020 with an image of her face super-imposed into the background.

A feature story in Vogue, written by New York Times reporter Amy Chozick, prominently featured female presidential candidates, including Sens. Kamala Harris of California, Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota, Kirsten Gillibrand of New York, Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, and Rep. Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii.

But Williamson was missing from action.

The profile, titled "Madam President? Five Candidates on What It Will Take to Shatter the Most Stubborn Glass Ceiling," also lacked commentary from the sixth woman candidate.

Chozick told CNN she had no intention to "diminish or take away" from Williamson's candidacy, but the piece was meant to focus on women who had already won tough election races.

"I do understand her disappointment and her supporters' disappointment in not seeing her. I think the landscape is very different," she said. "She did have an interesting turn in the debates, but if you think back to March, April, when you're looking at polling, and so the landscape is very different now and she's certainly a compelling candidate."

"I think it's sort of unfortunate that in a very historic photo, historic election year, six women with a real shot at the presidency, there has been a tendency to try to make it into some kind of cat fight or mean girls excluding," Chozick added. "Which is unfortunate and something that I think dogs women in general, not just women running for office."

Days later, Williamson posted an image to her official Instagram account with her face cropped in to the scene.


Williamson qualified for the first round of primary debates by surpassing the 65,000 donation threshold before many of the other candidates in the race, including Gillibrand and Klobuchar.

Williamson is also slated to once again appear in the next debates taking place this July in Detroit, Michigan.
