All the Things She Said: Women’s Voices in Comics

March 8 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm


This International Women’s Day, join us for a conversation about the power of women’s voices in comics with creators from Difference Engine, an independent comics publisher based in Singapore.

Tackling big topics through small but powerful publications within the DE Shorts imprint, Andeasyand (Creator of A Drip. A Drop. A Deluge: A Period Tragicomedy), Vinita Ramani, and Griselda Gabriele (Creators of Bearing Witness) discuss how exploring their shared experience of womanhood has empowered difficult conversations to be had through comics, whether it’s through quirky humour or raw honesty.

Come down to Book Bar on 8 March, 7:30 pm as we share stories about friendship, community, and all the messy and magnificent parts of being a woman.

DE Shorts titles including A Drip. A Drop. A Deluge: A Period Tragicomedy and Bearing Witness will also be available for purchase and signing by the creators. Light bites and drinks will be available for purchase as well.

With that new power, she navigates difficult topics like menstruation, anxiety, marriage, and weight, as well as silly daily musings.
