Ayn Rand, the author of the best-seller, Fountainhead, has rightly captured the essence of the young age woman with this,
"The question isn't who is going to let me – it's who is going to stop me?"
In this 21st Century when women are considered to be synonymous to fighters of independence, illustrations by artist Cecily Furlong portray this, in a boldly artistic way. From manifesting the woman as being her own master to standing up for herself, to giving vent to the fire inside her to wearing her heart on her sleeve and being proud of it, without any regrets or fear, Cecily has done full justice to the art she has brought forth.
The 'so-called weaker section of the society' has been brought out in an unintimidated, uncompromising way. There is fire and darkness in these illustrations.
Have a look at the artwork to be taken aback with the relevance of her work.
She sinks to feel the intense passion.

When she is with the man she loves.
I deflect here, it is surely not 'little'. It costs YOU!
"Nazi Punks Fuck Off", the fifth single by the Dead Kennedys.
For the fire in her belly has climbed up to her wits, too!
But has to have different eyes, one par for the world and another for her own calling. But, both are questioning the status quo.
She can be a devil, too! Cecily has put forth aptly, "..set out runnin', but I take my time; a friend of the Devil is a friend of mine.."
Say good, listen better. For 'as you sow, so shall you reap'.
She prays and she hustles to make that happen. Trying all the possibilities.
Not only physically!
Enjoyment with the self, the embrace has healing powers.
And depicted in a raw manner.
And she creates smokes of change with that fire.
But she still maneouvres to make her point.
That too, a turbulent one.
These illustrations aptly identify with the women of the 21st Century, complimenting them for their bold avatars.
