French Artist Creates Illustrations To Change The Gender Stereotypes Towards Women

Following the development of society, there are more and more beauty standards that are set, some of them are really weird. And the subject of those standards has been mainly women. Unfortunately, those strict social rules and high expectations for women have become the norm, which put many pressures on them. That's would explain why most ladies feel like they are surrounded on all sides by the obligation to be beautiful.
Even from a very young age, their minds are shaped by unrealistic beauty standards. They are expected to be hairless all over their body, have to be slim with no tummy but big butt, smell like daisies and roses all the time, not have regular bodily fluids and gases, and be an all-around perfect Barbie.
To change that unreasonable situation, French artist and illustrator C├ęcile Dormeau uses her talent of drawing 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. And the results are so surprisingly great that encourage women to be confident. Let's scroll down to check her work:
