Tonight I grieve for a Sweden that never scared me more than now. Seeing how a country that has been my home for over 19 years to bring in a hateful and racist political party in the parliament instead of an amazing political party that speaks for equality and love, the feminism party, scares me. I am shocked, confused and indescribably sad.

yes fuckSD politics

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 first cut is the deepest — “At some point you have to make a decision. Boundaries don’t keep other people out, they fence you in. Life is messy, that’s how we’re made. So you can waste your life drawing lines or you can live your life crossing them. But there are some lines that are way too dangerous to cross. Here’s what I know: if you’re willing to throw caution to the wind and take a chance, the view from the other side is spectacular.”

Felicity Huffman, Desperate Housewives.
Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series | Emmys ‘05

I know I have to make this fast but I want to thank the women — Oh, I’ve turned into one of those actresses and I’m sorry! The women of Wisteria Lane: Marcia, Eva Teri, Nicollette - I love you! I’d like to thank the fantastic writers: Tom Spezialy, Kevin Murphy, the tireless George Perkins. I’d like to thank David Mamet for putting me in his plays. I would like to thank Aaron Sorkin for watching those plays and casting me in Sports Night. And I would like to thank the stellar Marc Cherry from whom all good things come, for watching Sports Night and casting me in Desperate Housewives. And finally, I would d like to thank the incomparable William H. Macy for taking a chunky, twenty-two year old with a bad perm and glasses, out into a cow pasture and kissing me and making me his wife. Thank you!

I am an attractive man. You know what, I have never told you this but sometimes when I bend down to pick up the morning paper, I catch Bree Van de Kamp checking me out. I’ve always exuded a certain sexual magnetism and as I get older I think it is only becoming more intense. Oh, I am a hot guy…living in a neighborhood filled with nothing but lonely ladies. They can’t help themselves.
