Drawing Power is an anthology that brings the power of women's stories to the fore in visual comics form.
Praise for Drawing Power:
“Reading these stories together is like hearing a thousand feet stomping in unison or looking at the sea or the earth from far enough away to see its curve. This is a human problem that can neither be denied nor represented through a single story. I feel horrified, sad, tender, and proud, and most of all I want us to do better.”
– Thi Bui, author of “The Best We Could Do.”
“The comics in ‘Drawing Power’ add a striking visual dimension to the #MeToo movement. Something about the very visibility of the perpetrators in these stories—all very different, yet all somehow the same–brings home in a new way the extreme pervasiveness of sexual violence. By bearing witness quite literally to a wide range of traumatic incidents, the cartoonists in this book are changing not just the way we understand sexual assault, but the way we see it.”
– Alison Bechdel, author of “Fun Home.”
