For Katarzyna Babis, an art student living in Lublin, Poland, feminism is about women being free to make their own choices, without societal judgments.

She created this comic to show some of the criticisms and double standards that women face in their daily lives about the way they dress or the life choices that they make.

Frustrated by the misconceptions about feminism and feminists that she often hears, Katarzyna hopes the comic will initiate a larger conversation about the way women are perceived, and the expectations they are so often saddled with.

“I would like to take away the bad rep of the word ‘feminism,’ broaden the awareness of the actual agenda of this movement, and of the need for discussion about the way in which women are treated in our society.”

And so she did.
