When Brazilian graphic designer Carol Rossetti began posting colorful illustrations of women and their stories to Facebook, she had no idea how popular they would become. 

Thousands of shares throughout the world later, the appeal of Rosetti’s work is clear. Much like the street art phenomenon Stop Telling Women To Smile, Rossetti’s empowering images are the kind you want to post on every street corner, as both a reminder and affirmation of women’s bodily autonomy. 

"It has always bothered me, the world’s attempts to control women’s bodies, behavior and identities," Rossetti told Mic via email. "It’s a kind of oppression so deeply entangled in our culture that most people don’t even see it’s there, and how cruel it can be."

Rossetti’s illustrations touch upon an impressive range of intersectional topics, including LGBTQ identity, body image, ageism, racism, sexism and ableism. Some characters are based on the experiences of friends or her own life, while others draw inspiration from the stories many women have shared across the Internet. 

"I see those situations I portray every day," she wrote. "I lived some of them myself."

Despite quickly garnering thousands of enthusiastic comments and shares on Facebook, the project started as something personal — so personal, in fact, that Rossetti is still figuring out what to call it. For now, the images reside in albums simply titled “WOMEN in english!" or "Mujeres en español!" which is fitting: Rossetti’s illustrations encompass a vast set of experiences that together create a powerful picture of both women’s identity and oppression.

One of the most interesting aspects of the project is the way it has struck such a global chord. Rossetti originally wrote the text of the illustrations in Portuguese, and then worked with an Australian woman to translate them to English. A group of Israeli feminists also took it upon themselves to create versions of the illustrations in Hebrew. Now, more people have reached out to Rossetti through Facebook and offered to translate her work into even more languages. Next on the docket? Spanish, Russian, German and Lithuanian.

It’s an inspiring show of global solidarity, but the message of Rossetti’s art is clear in any language. Above all, her images celebrate being true to oneself, respecting others and questioning what society tells us is acceptable or beautiful.

"I can’t change the world by myself," Rossetti said. "But I’d love to know that my work made people review their privileges and be more open to understanding and respecting one another."

30 Day Art Challenge No.5 Draw more figures. Quick gestures and silhouettes. x20, with atleast 10 different body shapes
Thought i wouldn’t make it cause of work, but my meeting got re-scheduled and i had time enough for Drawing No.5, it was  a lot of fun drawing all those different types of bodies, I drew as fast as i could with longer strokes, no detail. Frankly i would have taken a lot more time with these before i started the challenge, i can see results, not that i care much in time, more than the quality, but yeah.

No.4  Draw a part of the human anatomy you have trouble with. x20, with atleast 5 being skeletal/musculature studies. of the  30 Day Art Challenge. 
Well i was supposed to post this like three days ago, i just finished it, i had some stuff to deal with, but i drew everyday all the same, so i don’t feel so bad about it. I found that it is very hard to find real pictures of muscles to take reference of, so i had to go with the digital ones, or from books, i know that there should be a webpage that could have helped me, i just didn’t happen to stumble upon it, and the skeleton ones were basically the same position, so i used what i could find, either way i loved drawing all of it.
Yeah i have some trouble drawing everything the same size, i hate to draw small, and yet i can bring my brain to make it larger, the small ones are actually that size, the big ones as well, i try to make them smaller, and i end up making this ↑ it makes me laugh when i see the tiny ones next to that big ass ones, oh well. (◠‿◠) Practice makes perfect. Feeling good :3

Debería de haber subido esto hace tres días, por cosas de la vida, osea no se pudo, de hecho lo acabo de terminar, pero eso si, dibuje todos los días, esta cabrón encontrar imágenes reales de los músculos específicamente de los pies, seguro hay una pagina, pero no la encontré, bueno aun así me encanto el proceso. Si, tengo problemas con los tamaños, me caga dibujar en diminuto, pero ese era el tamaño, al igual las grandes, me da risa los pies chiquitos a lado de los grandote, aun así me siento muy bien con esto.
