Being a woman isn’t easy, but in every iteration, it’s pretty damn beautiful.

Especially when it’s drawn by French illustrator Ccile Dormeau, who depicts women of all shapes, sizes, and colors experiencing the honest, funny, awkward, and infuriating moments that make up a woman’s lived experience.

It’s a colorful, animated look at life without the male gaze or unrealistic standards of beauty just women experiencing pride, strength, and uncertainty in equal measure. Body hair in all its glory. Women celebrating and embracing every curve, scar, and stretch mark as the badges of honor they are.

Here are 15 of Dormeau’s illustrations and GIFs, along with your daily reminder that women are amazing AF.

11. And even unsure.

14. Because we’re strongest when we work together.
