Summary

More than 60 female comics creators share their personalexperiences with sexual violence and harassment through new and original comics

Inspired by the global #MeToo Movement, Drawing Power: Women's Stories of Sexual Violence, Harassment, and Survival is a collection of original, nonfiction comics drawn by more than 60 female cartoonists from around the world. Featuring such noted creators as Emil Ferris, Aline Kominsky-Crumb, MariNaomi, Liana Finck, and Ebony Flowers the anthology's contributors comprise a diverse group of many ages, sexual orientations, and races--and their personal stories convey the wide spectrum of sexual harassment and abuse that is still all too commonplace. With a percentage of profits going to RAINN, Drawing Power is an anthology that stokes the fires of progressive social upheaval, in the fight for a better, safer world.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Since the #MeToo movement, many celebrities have shared their experiences of sexual harassment and violence at the hands of men in power. This anthology features comics written by women who have suffered everything from cat calls to domestic violence and rape. Like many anthologies, each comic varies in the amount of humor and type of illustration, but all of the comics display how each woman felt during the abuse and the gravity of the situation. Blackie' from the Deuce, by J. Gonzalez-Blitz, depicts her rape in a surreal black-and-white style, with a very straightforward textual retelling of her experience. My Ally, by MariNaomi, shows a job she accepted in which her manager would become overly familiar ; her story is drawn mostly in reds, pinks, grays, and blacks in a smooth, refined style. The comics collected in this volume are written by and show culturally, sexually, and gender-diverse women. Give this volume to patrons who want to be aware of the abuses that happen daily in our society, what constitutes as abuse, and that no one is exempt.--Suzanne Temple Copyright 2019 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "#MeToo is elaborated as a movement, not just a moment, in this diverse, unblinkingly honest anthology of autobiographical comics. "There are no easy stories to be found here," as Roxane Gay writes in the foreword. Each short piece, ranging from a few panels to a few pages, explores the specific cartoonist's experiences of sexual harassment, abuse, and violence in varying art styles and approaches. Some, such as Sabba Khan, use deceptively soft colors and linework to portray the isolation and despair assault imposes upon women. Others, such as Carol Lay, contrast jaunty colors and caricature with the blunt horror of assault. Most don't come to a clear resolution; the focus is on exposure rather than neatly sewing up a raw experience. Some, such as Roberta Gregory, serve up memories of being a young woman in the male-dominated world of underground comics, end in a place of gratitude for sisterhood and healing. Others simply lay rage, pain, and intractable frustration utterly bare, as Siobhán Gallagher does in her one-page account of realizing she isn't "one of the boys" after all. But whether they are optimistic or nihilistic, abstract or exactingly inked, each entry presents its own startling truth. These creators don't just draw power from the force of the community of fellow artists speaking out, together, in this excellent and powerful volume--they impart it to the reader, who may either be emboldened to tell their own stories or to listen to those who have too often been silenced.
