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."”

Part II of ECHO / Frostiron TEASER VID
+ Here’s a teaser for Part II of Echo! Hopefully I’ll be able to finish the whole video before the end of this month! ;D
After the battle in New York, Tony wakes up with no memories whatsoever of Loki and the relationship he had with him. Every trace of him is gone from memory, something that SHIELD and the Avengers team decides to keep from him to ensure his safety. (Or so Director Fury implies, but SHIELD’s real reasoning was to keep Tony compliant and to retain Tony’s moral’s for their own benefit).
However, ever since he’d woken up, Tony can’t shake the feeling he’s missing something crucial that he’d forgotten. He tries to readjust himself to his old routines and but fails to do so, causing his his friends to worry. He decides to retrace his steps back to when he was young, as he has a feeling he’ll find what he was seeking…
A younger Tony Stark comes across a strange phenomena occurring outside of his house and decides to go out to investigate, intrigued. What he discovers is more than he could have possibly imagined.
"Widdle pig, widdle pig," Sam stomped his feet on every syllable. "Wet me in!"
Standing at the foot of the bed with his hands balled into little fists, the toddler suppressed a giggle.
"Not by the hair of my chinny-chin-chin!" Dean answered back in a cartoonish voice.

You may not be able to tell, but this particular piece is on writing stab wounds.
Stabbing is penetration with a sharp or pointed object, like a knife. It differs from slashing by the way that it goes in, not across.
Human beings, believe it or not, generally try to…
