Being a feminist on the internet can be a harrowing experience. What with all the trolls lurking online ready and willing to call you ugly for the audacity to have an opinion. Then there are the endless articles aimed at women telling us how to get a better beach body, get a boyfriend and drive said boyfriend wild in the bedroom. It’s entirely exhausting and somewhat deadening.
Luckily for us, UK based cartoonist and illustrator Gemma Correll has brilliantly turned these refrains into hilarious feminist cartoons and we can’t get enough. See some of our favourites below. And in excellent news for her fans, Gemma has a new book coming out this year called The Worrier’s Guide to Life.
