A Ladydrawers History of Women’s Rights, Part VI: “The Crazy Cat Lady“

Part of the Series

Ladydrawers - The Crazy Cat LadySince the beginning of 2013, The Ladydrawers has been poking around behind the scenes of street-level sexism, looking at the very real gender imbalances in legislative policy that keep an almost accidental misogyny the norm in culture, and cultural production. We’ve outlined a history of women’s rights that doesn’t focus on gains so much as on future needs—because we’re interested in raising questions, not painting a pretty picture. (OK, we do both.) The miniseries started with Corinne Mucha’s strip Earnings and Yearnings; we’re excited she’s returned to illustrate the final below, The Crazy Cat Lady.

As always, you can catch all the previous strips here. And if you’re in Chicago this summer, be sure to visit our exhibition at the A + D Gallery. It’s sure to be fun and learny!

Ladydrawers - The Crazy Cat Lady

Briefly, we wanted to update you on where Truthout stands this month.

To be brutally honest, Truthout is behind on our fundraising goals for the year. There are a lot of reasons why. We’re dealing with broad trends in our industry, trends that have led publications like Vice, BuzzFeed, and National Geographic to make painful cuts. Everyone is feeling the squeeze of inflation. And despite its lasting importance, news readership is declining.

To ensure we stay out of the red by the end of the year, we have a long way to go. Our future is threatened.

We’ve stayed online over two decades thanks to the support of our readers. Because you believe in the power of our work, share our transformative stories, and give to keep us going strong, we know we can make it through this tough moment.

Our fundraising campaign ends tonight at midnight, and we still must raise $14,000. Please consider making a donation before time runs out.
