Drawing the Line
As part of the national conversation happening around women’s rights, feminist publisher Zubaan Books )New Delhi) teamed up the The Goethe Institut (Germany) for a week-long workshop wit ha group of Indian women to create comics. Using words and images, professional and amateurs , illustrators alike put pen to page to negotiate their angers, gears, hopes, and desires for change in their country. The result was something remarkable.
In this subversive and brilliant collection of visual stories, fourteen young women respond to the activism, debates, and on the ground encounters with discrimination and harassment in their daily lives. This edition, made in partnership with Zubaan and Ad Astra Comix (Toronto) has been produced with the North American audience in mind. Drawing the Line is a volume that reminds us that true feminism is inclusive, intersectional, and maintains a global perspective.
