British Library forthcoming talks - part 2 - Women Cartoonists

Another great sounding talk at the British Library - tickets on sale this week...

Women Cartoonists and Comic Artists
Fri 22 Jun 2018, 19:15 -
A celebration of the work of over 100 women artists spanning 250 years
The suffragettes’ use of cartoons and visual propaganda helped turn public opinion their way and from the 1920s, women cartoonists’ work began to appear regularly in newspapers. Nicola Streeten, Cath Tate, editors of The Inking Woman, and artist Kate Charlesworth discuss the history and politics of women’s comics.
Nicola Streeten is an anthropologist-turned-illustrator, cartoonist and comics scholar. She is the author of Billy, Me & You (Myriad, 2011) and co-founder of the international comics network Laydeez Do Comics. Her PhD from the University of Sussex is The Cultural History of British Feminist Cartoons and Comics from 1970 to 2010, with a particular focus on the use of humour. 
Cath Tate is an author of humourous books and has been publishing the work of women cartoonists for over 30 years, as featured in The Guardian. 
Kate Charlesworth was born in Barnsley and lives and works in Edinburgh. After art college in Manchester she began work as a freelance illustrator in London where she was part of (as it was then known) the ‘golden age’ of gay publishing. Her work has appeared in The Guardian and many other newspapers,
magazines, books, comics, exhibitions and electronic media, and she has drawn storyboards for Hot Animation and Aardman Animations. In 2014 she collaborated with Costa award-winners Mary and Bryan Talbot to illustrate Sally Heathcote: Suffragette, now translated into several languages.
