Our mission is to create cartoons to promote thought. We want to make the world a better place for women, warm fellowship, and for boundless joy.
We encourage you to think deeply and critically about what you read, hear, and see … we want you to look at what we have so long taken for granted, to question it, to get riled-up, and also to perhaps smile at the astonishing silliness / senselessness of the things the world has come to accept – nay, expect – of its daughters.
We upload new cartoons every Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday!

A note from the founder
Once upon a time, a child discovered that abilities can be trumped by an accident of birth – in her case, belonging to the wrong sex.
That child grew into a woman with a burning desire to improve the world – a desire I have never outgrown.
Most of my life has been spent quenching that fire by becoming a multiple award-winning teacher, beloved of my students. I have been blessed with the joy of leaving a beautiful, and satisfying, mark on this planet – to open doors to the future for thousands of amazing young people. I never found a difference between them – every one of them, regardless of race, creed, colour, gender, sexual orientation, or whatever else made them uniquely human, glowed with their joy in life and a desire to better themselves – to do good, to find friendship and success, to build something lasting and positive for themselves, their families, their neighbours, their world. I have discovered the truth of life to be: In our souls, we share so much; our differences are so small.
Now that I am retired, I dream of continuing to build a better world by highlighting the absurdity, the cruelty, the inexplicability of how we think about half the human race, behave towards females, organize women’s lives, and choose to shape our societies on a truly strange platform of outdated and sexist ideas.
I want my cartoons to encourage you to think deeply and critically about what you read, hear, and see … I want you to look at what we have so long taken for granted, to question it, to get riled-up, and also to perhaps smile at the astonishing silliness / senselessness of the things the world has come to accept – nay, expect – of its daughters.
It is a crime against the Heavens, Nature, and Humanity itself, to force that miracle called a human being to waste their life conforming to someone else’s stereotype.
May you share the same convictions / vision so that together we can bestow the gifts of equality, fairness, hope, and warm fellowship upon this wondrous world.— Carol
