The Elephant In The Room: Women Draw Their World

01 February 2018

This book brings together the work of 16 feminist comic

artists from India and Germany and their views on identity,

power, family, sex, their bodies and various issues that are

taboo in public discourse. The comic form allows these

artists to deploy humour and images—such as Nina Pagalies’

piece on ten temples dedicated to the vagina—to explore

subversive topics.
