THE RELENTLESS. 100 women in 100 years of modern Romania is a project initiated by De Basm – Children and Teenage Writers' Association, which proposes a cultural and historical rediscovery of 100 female personalities (individual or collective) about which the young generation does not have the opportunity to learn much about throughout school or the media.

The rediscovery of the subject is unique in many ways. It is not an encyclopedia of female personalities, but a book in two volumes, containing 100 stories inspired by the lives of these women. They are slightly fictional texts, based on a rich documentation (archives, books, interviews). The concept of diversity is highlighted by the alternation of the rhythm of the book through design and illustration.
