We review the models of women projected through the Anthony Browne`s picture books. We analyze the network relationships between mother-son, father-daughter, sister- brother and friend-friend. We identify passive archetypes: adult woman admired and revered (Mi mamá. México: FCE, 2005, En el bosque. México: FCE 2004); women depending on man (Willy el tímido. México: FCE, 1984, Willy el soñador. México: FCE, 1997; Las pinturas de Willy. México: FCE, 2000). It contrasts with the projections of active archetypes: interventionist women who take risks maintaining their femininity, who make changes and improve their environment, and face internal and external conflicts in a spirit of renewal (Gorila. México: FCE, 1991, El libro de los cerdos. México: FCE, 1991; El túnel. México: FCE, 1993, Voces en el parque. México: FCE, 1999, El juego de las formas. México: FCE, 2004). We propose bibliographic selection criteria and guidelines for didactic use of picture book, through a critical reading of the women’s social roles.
