15 Adorable Kids Pose As Iconic Figures In Women’s History

“Because of Them, We Can” is an adorable photo project that highlights some of the most influential and often overlooked figures of women’s history.

Eunique Jones’ “Because of Them, We Can” began as a photo series to “empower and excite young people about their history” in honor of Black History Month.

After its initial success, it turned into a year-long project and eventually a book.

Jones told BuzzFeed:


We choose the figures based on women we felt were bold and vocal in advocating for change and breaking both barriers and the glass ceiling. There were other women who could have been featured as well, however we featured many of them throughout our 365 quest last year.

Reflecting on both projects, Jones explained:


The first series showed us how necessary these positive images were and allowed me to think bigger as far as my approach and planning is concerned. Rather than allotting one month to this, I’m committed to spending as much time as possible to connect the dots between the past, present and future.
