Being a feminist is nothing more than considering that men and women have the same rights and deserve the same opportunities. In my opinion, it is not a battle, it is not a discussion, it is searching altogether for the best solutions to live as best as possible, from affection, from tranquility. Today, there is still a long way to go, women are still second class citizens in many ways, such as job insecurity, the wage gap, the glass ceiling, work conciliation, micro-machisms, or gender violence and sexual harassment.
And if we all rise up and walk together, in the same direction, it will be easier.
This year I wanted to pay a small tribute to the International Women’s Day with this illustration of a modernized Emily Dickinson in jeans, with a notebook to collect her thoughts. In addition to writing some incredible poems, she was very fond of nature, when she was only 9 years old she began to study botany, and her meticulous collection of plants and flowers or Herbarium is still preserved, that’s why she has a floral tattoo. This illustration will be available in my store as a poster or postcard.
Next year I hope to write another entry in which I can say that there is one less step left for total equity.
