In my online community The Lasting Supper
, a woman posted this:
"A woman's worth goes down the higher numbers go...any of her numbers ( except bra size of course). The world wants women to be as small as possible and I am ashamed for taking up space. My early morning thoughts are often bleak, time to eat because I'm hungry and because I eat in defiance of all that other bullshit."
The conversation that ensued is fascinating!
We saw a cartoon opportunity. We agreed I should pursue it. This is what I got.
Related to this, I read some of Grace Jones' excerpts from her book, I'll Never Write My Memoirs
. The struggle she's had to gain and maintain her independence as a woman in a misogynist industry... music... is phenomenal!
I want to personally thank the people who send me cartoon ideas. Like this one, for example.
I personally welcome you to join us at The Lasting Supper
. We talk about everything!
