Photos of the Day: Cute little kids posed as important women from history

This is just what I needed to get going this Monday morning.

Frida Kahlo

In her “Because of Them, We Can” project, photographer Eunique Jones features little kids posed as groundbreaking women throughout history. The project started last year in honor of Black History Month (check out that series too for the cutest little Rosa Parks you ever saw) as Jones was reflecting on being a mother raising Black boys our current culture. She hopes it will “encourage and empower people of all ages and hues to dream out loud and reimagine themselves as greater than they are, simply by connecting the dots between the past, the present and the future.” You can follow the project here.

Audre Lorde, Hillary Clinton, Gloria Steinem, and Dorothy Pitman Hughes after the jump.
