What Does Girl Power Look Like?

This story begins with a birthday - specifically, photographer Jaime Moore's daughter's fifth birthday. As a treat for Emma's special day, Moore gave her what every 5-year-old girl loves: a costume party! Yet Emma's dress up gig game turned into a thought provoking project.
Rather than frilly satin dresses and plastic high heels à la Disney, Moore styled her daughter as five of history's iconic women - leaders who changed the world and made it possible for girls to aspire - and achieve - everything their heart desires. An inspiring quintet was chosen: civil rights leader Susan B. Anthony, French fashion designer Coco Chanel, famed aviator Amelia Earhart, political activist and the first deaf-blind person to earn a BA Helen Keller, and Jane Goodall - animal welfare activist. Stunning portraits of these amazing women were replicated with reproductions starring little Emma.
The result is a gallery that is as intimate as it is powerful - serving as an inspiration for girls and women everywhere. [Source: Jaime Moore's website and Facebook page]
