The video starts out with a declaration in bright red letters: “Beauty Has No Expiration Date”. I instantly prepared myself for another John Legend-type “embrace the beauty of all women-style music video.” ... Read More

Brazilian graphic designer Carol Rossetti didn’t set out to start a movement. She didn’t set out to create an iconic series of illustrations. Her project started out as something deeply personal. In fact, it doesn’t even really have a name yet— for now her illustrations remain in Facebook albums entitled “WOMEN in english!” and “Mujeres en español!”
“It has always bothered me, the world's attempts ... Read More
