Photographer Envisions Her Daughter as Groundbreaking Women of History

This Exists... Because of A Lady


Jaime Moore wanted to do something special for her daughter’s fifth birthday photo, but when she looked online, all she could find were princess tutorials.

“Now don’t get me wrong,” she says on her site, “I LOVE Disney Princesses… But it got me thinking, they’re just characters, a writers tale of a princess (most before 1998)…an unrealistic fantasy for most girls,” except, she admits, for Kate Middleton. “My daughter wasn’t born into royalty, but she was born into a country where she can now vote, become a doctor, a pilot, an astronaut, or even President if she wants and that’s what REALLY matters.” So she and her daughter decided to do a series of photos with five historical women who fought to get Jamie, Emma, and a lot of other women the rights and opportunities they enjoy today. And those pictures? They’re great.

Susana Polo thought she'd get her Creative Writing degree from Oberlin, work a crap job, and fake it until she made it into comics. Instead she stumbled into a great job: founding and running this very website (she's Editor at Large now, very fancy). She's spoken at events like Geek Girl Con, New York Comic Con, and Comic Book City Con, wants to get a Batwoman tattoo and write a graphic novel, and one of her canine teeth is in backwards.
