Women have too often been portrayed in popular culture as weak or unintelligent. Images in the mainstream media more often than not cast female characters as damsels in distress, country bumpkins or naïve housewives. The women in this project have rejected those stereotypes. They can be ideal role models for any person looking to break free from clichés.
Through this body of work I hope to present images of strong and self-sufficient women and help eliminate preconceived notions of this male dominated society about what women do and how they should present themselves. I hope that some day these kinds of women will be better represented on the pages of contemporary novels, magazines and in popular cinema.
