Graphic Women

January 6, 2012

I read Graphic Women by Hillary Chute recently, it’s a really interesting book about women and graphic narratives. I am currently involved in a graphic narrative project that is called IZZAT, surrounding issues of domestic and family violence in the South Asian Toronto community. Part of the mandate of IZZAT is to realize the therapeutic results that manifest when a personal trauma can be re-viewed through drawing and writing. Graphic Women really helped me to clarify the role that drawing can play in healing, ownership and resiliency.
