Motivational Illustrations Inspire Women To Fight Gender Prejudice
Earlier this year, Brazilian artist Carol Rosetti started creating powerful illustrations for her series called “Women.” The series focuses on many of common prejudices women face every day concerning what people say they should or shouldn’t do with their bodies and their lives. These simple yet powerful illustrations inspire women to take their lives in their own hands, no matter how society tries to shape their behavior and preferences.
What Rosetti started as a small project to share on her blog and Facebook page with her friends, quickly became viral, reaching women around the world. The illustrations have already been translated into at least 16 languages by volunteers who contacted the artist, believing that the messages the drawings carry need to be seen by women in their countries.
With these illustrations the artist also clarifies the definition of feminism as a stand for equal rights for both women and men. She also reaffirms that it is still a relevant issue world-wide.
