Little Girl explores the concerns of children wanting to grow up so quickly and the glamorization of womanhood tasks. When I was my sister's age all I wanted to do was wear make up, shave, wear a bra and be a grown woman.. but now that I am a woman, all of those things feel like a JOB to me, tasks that I do to abide by our societal norms.. so why was it so glamorized inside my mind as a child? Because I wanted to be like my mom? Because I wanted to be like the harsh influences in the media? Either way, I was never given a chance to set my own definition of beauty.. beauty standards were already set for me and my subconcious teenage mind felt that I need to fall in line and follow the action of other women to become a "beautiful" woman myself.
