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."

The whole point of this song is for girls that turn it on feel confident and empowered, when you turn that song on just feel sexy and feel good about yourself. -The whole stand that we’re making with this thing that we’re calling ‘women empowerment’ is the fact that this society has a lot to say on what should make a woman feel good and they think they have a right to tell us as woman what should make us feel confident in our own bodies and whether that is being covered up and wearing a long sleeve sweater or showing a body part that maybe you would like to show off, at the end of the day we’re the only ones that are entitled to our bodies and you’re allowed to wear whatever makes you feel good and whatever makes you feel confident, we’re not encouraging anybody to dress in a certain way, we’re encouraging all women to dress how they would like to dress in order to feel confident because at the end of the day we’re the only ones that should be making that call and whether or not somebody sexualizes you for wearing an outfit, that’s their problem and not yours, there’s this whole movement dedicated to that now; the feminist movement of women wearing what they want to wear for them and not for anybody else. And whatever your judgment is on that, it’s not up to you. Girls, we gotta stand firm on that. That’s what we believe. - Fifth Harmony

I think this speaks for itself. Accepting a person doesn’t mean you get to put limits on their freedom. You can’t be an ally and want us to stop talking, or labeling, or demanding to be heard.  

Acceptance has no exceptions. Period.
