We’re registering Carol Rossetti’s amazing images loud and clear, and we are loving them. The graphic designer’s art, which has taken Facebook by storm, is all about self-acceptance.

Originally crafted in Portuguese, the work has been quickly translated into English, Hebrew, Italian, Russian, and Spanish so that women around the world can enjoy their positive messages.

Rossetti’s depicts women who have physical disabilities, embrace nontraditional gender roles, identify as other than female, are proud of their bodies and ethnicity, and who look different and act different than “normal.” She empowers all women to disregard the concept of living or looking the “right” way in lieu of following our own individual paths.

    It is hard to say which I admire most. I like all of them. The one about Whitney resonates with me the most because it took me so many years to accept myself as a plus size person.
