Fighting sexism like a never ending wave of expendable bad guys can be tough work! Your donations will work toward helping fund my website, buying research materials and helping me work toward filming a video series about Feminism in comics and media and how to create real progressive change toward a better world and a better, more inclusive geek culture. 

Ever since I was a child I loved comic books. From my first issue of Iron Man my parents bought me at a gas station during a road trip to my mountain high collection of graphic novels, comics and the culture they are part of has been part of my life for as long as I remember. Along with every issue I collected and cherished came a deep passion to share my love of this art form with other people, a passion that was unfortunately met with skepticism, mockery, harassment and sexism.  For any woman trying to enter a man's space in this world, their effort is often met with attitudes difficult enough to scare many people back into typical gender roles propped up by society. 

By the time I reached college I became involved in my local activist communities and began to learn about the how and why these power structures exist and more importantly, how to dismantle them. I got my BA with a focus on history and literary trauma and focused on how traumas through history have manifested themselves in the literary works of the time periods and reflected the culture they were created in. We can learn a lot by deconstructing the culture around us, analyzing it, and being critical of it and comics is a great example of this. I hope that my project can help fans have these essential conversations about why the media we love can be harmful and how we can work together to make the comic world a safer place for comic lovers of all genders and backgrounds. 


Currently my blog posts  for this project will be posted here https://feministretcon.wordpress.com until I can get up and running enough to pay for a dot com address.

After acquiring a real dot com site, I plan on filming a video series in the same style as my blog posts and after that, well the sky is the limit!
