Liza Donnelly has been drawing cartoons about culture and politics for over thirty years. In addition to her acclaimed work for the New Yorker Magazine, she has written Op-Ed for the New York Times, and is a columnist and cartoonist for Forbes.com, specializing in politics, gender issues and women’s rights.
We have been big fans of Donnelly’s artistry and humor for a long time, and were thrilled to see her work on Medium, where we found this gem.
WYSK connected with Liza to learn more…
“What I am trying to do – as often as I can – with my weekly political cartoon on Medium, is draw about women’s rights and feminism in a global perspective. I decided that we can’t talk about these issues enough! All women have similar problems in their respective cultures no matter where you go in the world, it’s only a matter of degree. From rape being used in war, to date rape, to verbal abuse to unequal pay to lack of respect: it’s a continuum. This cartoon is one such example.”
If you are not familiar with Liza’s work we encourage you to check out one of her sixteen books, yes, sixteen! One of our favorites is Women on Men, “an insightful, timely look at women and men in an age when the old conventional gender roles are falling away and new ones are being discovered and defined—women wisely taking the lead.”
