Paralelas _personal project
How many stories of strong and determined women do you know, right? I and my friends Judith Belfer and Clara Barbosa know a lot of them. And more than knowing, we believe in the power of these stories to inspire other women. So we created Paralelas, a collaborative profile on Instagram where we publish stories of real women and the challenges they overcame on their search for equality.
Besides the testimonials filmed by us, we also publish stories from women who want to share their experiences, important news and shocking statistics regarding equality.
ALINE _works in the music industry, she's used to being the only woman among teams formed almost exclusively by men. To her, silence is a symbol of oppression, so women need to speak up. In her experience, being a black woman in Brazil is being resistant every day.
AKEMI _endured a lot of undermining for being a single mom and a tattoo artist, a profession dominated by men. With dedication and hard work, she proved her talent and became known for her art.
Against facts, there are no arguments. Numbers are a piece of valuable information in the fight for equal rights, so we publish statistics that we want to help change. Besides writing the posts, I also work as illustrator drawing the theme I love the most: powerful women.
