Women Cartoonists: Lusty Laughs

Rural Intelligence Arts Section Image

On Friday evening, April 4, Oblong Books in Rhinebeck will host a discussion with New Yorker cartoonist Liza Donnelly (“I’m staying together for the sake of my parents.”) about her new book, Sex and Sensibility: 10 Women Examine the Lunacy of Modern Love…in 200 Cartoons. Everyone knows that sex and cartooning are natural allies.  What’s news here is that, until fairly recently, the subject was considered no laughing matter if it issued from the female pen.  Only in the past decade has it been accepted as seemly for women cartoonists to express themselves on this sticky topic.  Electing a woman to the presidency may be the feminist movement’s fondest hope, but this other breakthrough is good for a much bigger laugh.
