Femme Fatale

17. Anrozelle. Feminist. Humanist. Equalist. Whatever you call someone who believes in full equality and rights of all genders, races, religions, and whatever else people use to discriminate. Equestrian. Swifty. Nerdfighter. Christian. And yes I do believe I can be all these things.

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."

tell me I don’t need feminism

tell me I don’t need feminism when a white women gets payed 77 cents to every dollar a man makes and women of color get payed even less

tell me I don’t need feminism when only 18% of prosecuted rapes end with conviction

tell me I don’t need feminism when my brother can walk around in just his underwear but I cannot walk around in shorts and a t-shirt because I will be sexualized and told to cover up

tell me I don’t need feminism when women are abused sexually, abused mentally, and abused physically and told it is their fault that it happened

tell me I don’t need feminism when girls get called ‘sluts’ or ‘whores’ when they have sex but boys get a high five

tell me I don’t need feminism when a man feels entitled to a woman’s body when she is her own person

tell me I don’t need feminism when you’re told at a young age ‘boys will be boys’ and to ignore them instead of teaching boys not to do that

tell me I don’t need feminism when men hear of this movement and turn it into a movement about them and how a feminist hates all men

tell me I don’t need feminism when you type in Google ‘feminist are’ and you get ‘stupid’ and ‘retarded’ as and end result because we realize what is wrong

tell me I don’t need feminism because you’re scared of the strength of women

tell me I don’t need feminism

This 25 year old woman from Indonesia was gang raped by 8 men and then thrown in sewage. Her punishment, 8 public lashes.
It is insane that we live in a world where this is allowed to happen and nobody says a word because they are scared of being “offensive”. Culture is not an excuse for abuse! I wish that instead of focusing on the word “bossy” or defending what some young “popstar” is wearing, western “feminists” would speak up about the lack of rights of women  in Islamic countries. I guess the only feminism that matters is western white women’s…

It’s FEARLESS to have faith that someday things will change. FEARLESS is having the courage to say goodbye to someone who only hurts you, even if you can’t breathe without them. I think it’s FEARLESS to fall for your best friend, even though he’s in love with someone else. And when someone apologizes to you enough times for things they’ll never stop doing, I think it’s FEARLESS to stop believing them
