Amplify: Graphic Narratives of Feminist Resistance

Amplify: Graphic Narratives of Feminist Resistance

In this highly original text--a collaboration between a college professor, a playwright, and an artist--graphic storytelling offers an emotionally resonant way for readers to understand and engage with feminism and resistance.

Issues of gender roles, intersectionality, and privilege are explored in seven beautifully illustrated graphic vignettes. Each vignette highlights unique moments and challenges in the struggle for feminist social justice. Brief background information provides context for the uninitiated, and further readings are suggested for those who would like to learn more. Finally, carefully crafted discussion questions help readers probe the key points in each narrative while connecting specific stories to more general concepts in gender studies and feminist theory.
