Rossetti is gratified by the attention her drawings have received, and the electronic support networks they are creating.

When Brazilian artist Carol Rossetti's engaging drawings of women and their self-empowerment stories went viral last year, no one was more surprised than she.

By now, her distinctive series of graphic renderings can be found in more than a dozen languages thanks to her "fan-translators," and are fueling a world-wide, solidarity. She says it's all based on a simple message: "be true to one's self."

Rossetti will be lecturing in Fort Wayne as part of IPFW's Women's History Month celebration, and WBOI's Julia Meek invited her to the Madge Rothschild Studios to discuss this far-reaching project.
