María María Acha-Kutscher wants to make women's participation in social movements more visible -- and her gorgeous illustrations do just that.
Acha-Kutscher started her "Indignadas" project
in 2012, paying homage to woman activists worldwide. She illustrates
specific activists and protestors, such as Emma Sulkowicz, whose project
"Carry That Weight"
brought international attention to the issues of campus rape and how
universities handle reports of sexual assault. She has also illustrated
women at rallies like Occupy Wall Street, Slutwalks, and Black Lives
According to her website,
the artist hopes that her work will "make women's efforts more visible
and place women at the center of these social struggles."
