CAROL ROSSETTI. Brazilian graphic designer who began posting colorful illustrations of women and their stories to Facebook. I included her in this feature because her posters highlight challenges that women face in modern society, and are empowering reminders for women to be in-charge of their bodies. Read more about her on this CNN article.


SHE-LOGY is a blog project open to everyone who is interested to celebrate women this whole month of March. If you’re reading this, I extend that invitation to you to contribute post/s about the women you’d like to honor. You can email me at silverliningmama@gmail.com. Thank you for reading this.
