Girl Power

Blend photographer Kate T. Parker was featured this week on the Huffington Post blog of writer Mary Alice Stephenson. From Atlanta, Georgia Parker uses her skill to document her daughters and friends in the hope of empowering them away from the pink princess wearing stereotypes so common for young girls. She  capturing the girls (mainly her own daughters age 5 and 8)  skateboarding, swimming, water skiing, and  just generally being active physically. Why let the boys have all the fun outside when there is far more to do than playing dolls and having tea parties.

“You don’t need to be pretty, perfect or compliant to be loved.” she told the Huffington Post. Parker wants to her daughters and other girls to “be strong, be yourself, be honest and celebrate who you are.”

  • I remember rollerblading with my daughters, a little more than 20 years ago, the youngest wearing pink, she loved the colour, but they were no princesses. This is a wonderful story, with great images, and a powerful message. thanks for sharing it with us.
