We all do everything

Madalena Matoso

“We all do everything” disposes of words and instead becomes a game. The illustrations show different characters – men, women, young and old – engaging in a wide variety of activities. The split pages mean that, upon turning the separate parts, readers are able to make different combinations. It is possible to see all characters doing everything, meaning that, at least in this book, there are no prejudices or preconceived ideas. Everyone can do everything: grandparents go surfboarding, fathers hang out the washing, mothers do odd jobs, everything happens naturally.
This book is the result of a contest for creativity, launched by the municipality of Geneva. It was originally published by  Éditions Notari, created to promote equality between men and women.
Here is a video that shows how We all do everything works.
