Fruit of Knowledge: The Vulva vs. The Patriarchy

by Liv Strömquist Author and Melissa Bowers Translator

Comics about the history and culture of the vulva. A body part hidden and made shameful in modern western society—activist Liv Stronmquist asks why we're so repressed but also obsessed with menstruation and genitalia. Her hilarious, whip-smart comments tackle this question from multiple angles: history, science, sociology, personal stories, and biting social commentary. This book is perfect for the burgeoning feminist, or to keep in your bathroom when you have guests over, or really for anyone who likes comics, big questions, and telling it like it is.
