What better way to learn about important women in history than with 11 beautiful photos starring an adorable 5-year-old girl?

Photographer Marc Bushelle, who's also the proud father of his subject, Lily, created this photo series, called "The Heroines Project," because he both wanted to spend quality family time with his wife and daughter and teach his daughter about strong heroines in history.

"I thought this also could be a great way to build her confidence and sense of self worth," Bushelle told Upworthy. "This series was inspired by another photographer who did something similar with her daughter."

In addition to viewing his work on his website above, be sure to like his Facebook page. You don't want to miss this kind of talent!

Bushelle's wife, Janine Harper, wrote each photo description below.


Here's Lily looking smart as Nobel Prize winner Toni Morrison.
