This compendium of fables in visual form features women negotiating different types of gender-based violence and inequity in various cultures worldwide. Five graphic narratives expose such issues as femicide, child molestation and female genital mutilation without defining the affected women and girls by their unfortunate circumstances. Highlighting the power of intelligence, humor and decency and the willingness of people to work together to effect social change, these fableseach presented bilingually in English and the protagonists native language of Spanish, German, Arabic or Swahilitranscend boundaries of gender, race, language and geography without ignoring differences. Subtle ink washes, brilliant colors and detailed crosshatching distinguish the acclaimed magical realist artwork through which the stories unfold.

Took a break from work and walked over to the library to pick up some holds.

One is a book I requested the library purchase forever ago (that finally came in) and the other is a total #blamelitsy book

I‘ll leave it to you to guess which is which 😂

Soubhiville 🤣😂🤣. Yay! I have to say, I love that the subtitle is “the F word project!” (edited) 3mo
