I have remastered one of my favorite Mayara comics, celebrating one of my great influences and inspirations.
I love that one of the great feminist writers, who wrote Room of One’s Own and Orlando amongst other delights, has such an answer for what is a woman.
Onwards to adventures and explorations, to the multitudes of verbs inside a seemingly simple not so simple noun.
It is a noun that has plenty of room and curiosity to fit trans and cis women, for non-binary and intersex folks who feel that this is noun that has meaning for them.
Happy International Women’s Day, who is a woman that inspires you?

“I mean, what is a woman? I assure you, I do not know. I do not believe that you know. I do not believe that anybody can know until she has expressed herself in all the arts and professions open to human skill.” Virginia Woolf, Professions for Women
