French Artist Creates Illustrations That Challenge Society’s Standards For Women

In today’s world, most women feel like they are surrounded on all sides by the obligation to be beautiful, 24 hours a day 365 days a year. Strict societal rules and high expectations for women, unfortunately, have become the norm, and even young girls are feeling the impact.

Of course, I think most of us can agree that such human behavior is not always a choice. Human behavior is often automatic and unintentional and rooted in the belief that others expect us to behave in a certain way, particularly when upholding traditions and culture. Even in situations where gender does not appear to be an issue, it has the potential to be so and must be considered.

French artist and illustrator Cécile Dormeau is using her art to confront and hopefully make a change in stereotypes that are central to evolving how both women and men should be able to perceive one another without judgment.
