Woman: an emblematic figure of society, inspire both respect and humor. In a world where its strength is often underestimated,
graphic humor emerges as a powerful tool to challenge stereotypes, celebrate achievements and highlight gender issues in an
insightful and provocative way.
Our pencils and brushes are weapons of equality, transforming women’s struggles into humor that pokes at conscience and
provokes reflection. From everyday challenges to major battles for rights, graphic humor captures the essence of the female
experience with a unique blend of irony, sarcasm and tenderness.
Through our drawings, we honor women as protagonists of their own stories, challenging social norms and dismantling
prejudices with a smile on their faces. May each stroke be an ode to the courage, resilience and diversity that make women an
inexhaustible source of inspiration and humor.
