COMICS – SERIES
THE 1st COMIC BOOK FROM THE BLOGGER EMMACLIT
‘Emma’s strong, smart, clear-eyed book gives us the language (and the urgent desire) to shout from the rooftops about the maddening, unacknowledged injustices women face every day. It validates all the thoughts I️ have about being a woman and didn’t have words for.’ — Liana Finck, author of Passing for Human: A Graphic Memoir
‘On her blog, Emma posts drawings that tell stories about feminism, health and sexuality.’ — Nouvel Obs
‘Funny and relevant, this is a book to slip on all your colleagues’ desks…’ — Elle
‘Emma talks about the clitoris like nobody else.’ — Huffington Post
‘The gender wars of household chores: a feminist comic.’ — The Guardian
A motley bunch of stories on feminism, politics and sexuality, Emma is a new blogger attacking stereotypes on a wide range of issues. Countering cliché, she shares her experience as a new mom through a series of anecdotes that are anything but candy-coated. With accuracy and dedication, she takes another look at subjects like the sacrosanct maternal instinct, the baby blues, the story of the clitoris and the story of refugees, and questions truths that might seem fixed. This book is as funny as it is touching and informative.
Back at work, Emma realized that her colleagues thought maternity leave was like going on vacation. She looks back on giving birth, and the pain and fatigue that followed.
