The work of Zully Mejia aims to shift cultural perceptions of women. In America, womanhood is associated with weakness and dependency. By painting empowered women, Mejia challenges the perception of female weakness, and she redefines womanhood as strength within her work. Through this portrayal of power, Mejia wants to give women back their freedom to be human without being limited by the societal image of weakness.
