From the creator of Nasty Women comes a feminist graphic anthology charting the political pioneers and fearless females who kicked butt for equality over the last one hundred years.
We’ve buddied up with 404 Ink and BHP Comics to host an evening with some of the anthology’s artists and contributors to discuss the art of the graphic anthology, the importance of highlighting the overlooked achievement of female pioneers past and present, and the stories each contributor decided to tell.
