Cuando la artista Carla Rosetti empezó a publicar sus ilustraciones en Facebook, nunca pensó que se convertirían en el fenómeno que es hoy. Estas ilustraciones son del tipo que quieres pegar en cada esquina como recordatorio y afirmación de la autonomía que tiene la mujer sobre su propio cuerpo.

“It has always bothered me, the world’s attempts to control women’s bodies, behavior and identities. 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.”//

“Siempre me ha molestado que el mundo trate de controlar el cuerpo, el comportamiento y la identidad de la mujer. Es una forma de opresión tan atada a nuestra cultura que la mayoría de las personas no se dan cuenta que existe, que tan cruel puede ser.”
