International Women’s Day
If you weren’t already aware, March 8th is International Women’s Day; a time to celebrate the achievements of women, show support for the women in your life, and inspire the next generation of women to go even further. In honor of the day we thought it might be nice to showcase some digital comics created by women. Some you might be familiar with, others you might not, but all are worth checking out. Of course, if you have any favorites that aren’t on the list please feel free to post them in the comments. Enjoy!
