#R29Collabs is Refinery29’s Instagram-first creative collaborations where we work with designers, illustrators, photographers, and other artists from around the world to create unique social content that educates, empowers, and inspires our readers.
Women's History Month began in 1987 after the National Women’s History Project petitioned to change "Women's History Week" to a full month in March. For each and every single day of #WomenHistoryMonth, we spotlighted a woman who is #BreakingGlass and shattering barriers. We worked with Esther Goh – an illustrator based in Singapore – for a series of illustrated portraits of Malala Yousafzai, Madaleine Albright, and Serena Williams.
Illustrations: Esther Goh. Art Direction: Elliot Salazar. Copywriting: Lindsay Arakawa, and Capri Debiccari.
