These are mostly figurative works, which direct attention to the present, incarnating pieces that portray the power and beauty of the female figure. The feminist theme is displayed in the form of great hands, these being powerful instruments of battle and, heavy feet, which represent the determination, direction and perseverance of the woman in her path. With this proposal, the aim is to convey a message of strength and courage to all warriors, considering it essential to recognize and promote mutual support, in which the gestures expressed artistically become necessary to go through the processes of struggle. This not only alludes to gender spheres and their manifestations of social inequality, but encompasses an ode to diversity, portraying female beauty in all its forms, colors and sizes. This implies daring to break with socially established expectations and roles from a sex-gender binomial, consequently, promoting equality, individuality and authenticity.
The word "feminism" refers, first, to the historical practice of women's movements: (...) aimed at correcting the effects of sexual discrimination both in public structures and in private worlds. In addition, the word "feminism" evokes the theory developed by women, from the perspective of a gender consciousness, to review the epistemological basis of knowledge and question the false assumption of the impartiality of knowledge.
Also, the word "feminism" designates the critical work of dismantling cultural artifacts and technologies of representation, to construct alternative meanings to the hegemonic definitions that make images and social imaginary.
