Girls 4 Obama

By Melissa McEwan

In the comments of this thread, a couple people commented that they hadn’t seen any/as many pictures of little girls gazing raptly at Obama, cheering for him, hugging him, and otherwise interacting with him, compared to the number of images we’ve seen of little boys. They’re out there—that we don’t see them as much probably has a lot to do with the typical bias that excludes girls and women from stories as long as there are boys and men to focus on. But that bias doesn’t exist here—so, for your viewing pleasure, a collection of girls who love Obama, beginning with one of my favorite pictures of this campaign season, which happened to be taken at a diner not 2 miles from my house.

    There’s just no substitute for a positive father figure. These pictures make me smile.
