This article is lovely, portraits of girls on the cusp of adolescence and talking about their ambitions and hopes.

Those are wonderful, I love the way she's got them looking directly at the camera, no demure/girlyness.

Glad to draw to attention to it, it's nice to have a positive thread in Feminism every now and then wink

Agree that it's refreshing that the portraits are not "girly" (nothing wrong with that in itself) - no forced smiles or coquetish glances, just natural and relaxed.

Thank you, that's lovely. I got very emotional reading this, I don't know why. Admittedly I'm a bit fragile at the moment but I have a daughter the same age and I worry about what her world will look like as an adult.
Powerful photos.
