Carol Rossetti is a Brazilian designer who posts empowering and quirky illustrations of women to Facebook. These are the kind of images that not only promote positive body image, but also protest the world’s attempts to control women’s bodies and behavior.

Rossetti encourages women to take control of their bodies and identities.

“I can’t change the world by myself,” Rossetti has 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.”
