Cartoonist Liza Donnelly gave an interesting TED Talk combining autobiography, cartoons, and culture ideas of gender. She starts like this:
Back in the ’50s and ’60s, when I was growing up, little girls were supposed to be kind and thoughtful and pretty and gentle and soft. And we were supposed to fit into roles that were sort of shadowy. Really not quite clear what we were supposed to be.
It is a fun and thought-provoking talk. Click below to watch.
