Here’s Some Girl Power Art to Make You Feel Strong and Beautiful…because You Are
Have you ever been walking down the street, minding your own damn business, when some man found it appropriate to start catcalling? Well, this Latina was catcalled while visiting Panama and took the experience and transformed it into an art series calling for #GRLPWR. BOOM.
Say hello to Debi Hasky.

This Latina illustrator and designer from Miami has a message for her fellow Latinas, it’s time for some #GRLPWR, yo.
She’s transformed misogynistic experiences into empowering art.
You tell ’em, girl! ✊
From the rude catcalls of street workers…
…to being called thunder thighs.
In two languages, no less.
Hasky wants her art to inspire action.
Because everyone deserves some respect. How would you feel if your abuelita, mami, or hermana was on the receiving end of catcalls?
She’s letting people know that women are strong.
And they really DGAF what men think.
Her art earned her the chance to study abroad in Barcelona.
There was a scholarship contest that Hasky learned about based on the theme: Design for A Better World.
“After ruling out themes I could not relate to, I was inspired by a group of street workers in Panama while they shouted obscenities at me,” Hasky wrote on her Facebook. “Inspired by conversations with friends who have experienced a similar forms of harassment and the unbearable discomfort it produces inside us all, I went ahead and created a few #GRLPWR designs and turned it all in.”
Hasky’s art has evolved and grown since moving to Barcelona.
Further embracing all types of women.
