Lady of War

“Lady of War” is Giselle Almeida’s newest artwork! This piece is a direct criticism to the images where male dominance is normalized, and women are presented in stereotypical roles. “For a long time, I saw illustrations with men portrayed as powerful and strong beings, while women usually appeared submissive or vulnerable, and almost always half naked. In ‘Lady of War’, my intention was to make a provocation and reverse the roles, exalting every woman’s ability to defend themselves”, explains the illustrator.
