Inhabitots: I read the inspiration behind Not Just A Girl, and I say a big “Bravo!” Can you tell me why you chose/ how you decided on these 5 specific women?
Jaime C. Moore: There were many different reasons why I chose these 5 amazing women. Each woman is so very different in how they’ve lived their lives and how they have changed ours for the better. A big thing for me was that these incredible women overcame such obstacles and persevered to change their lives simply because they wanted to…. Amelia wanted to fly a plane, so she did. Not letting society’s “rules” direct their lives for them, they raised the bar and we should continue to.
Inhabitots: If you did the same pictorial with modern-day women you’d like your daughter to learn more about and respect, who would you include?
Jaime C.
