A Young Feminist Awakening with New Moon Girls

Imagine my delight in checking our Instagram recently and finding this awesome comic drawn by our former reader Kelly Abeln, now a professional artist based in Minneapolis. See more of her fabulous art at KellyAbeln.com .  When I got in touch, she said:

So glad you like my comic, it’s a true story 🙂 I really loved New Moon growing up, and now as an adult I see how important it was and is to have positive media for girls.

Kelly remembers her feminist awakening with an issue of New Moon,  “New Moon opened my eyes to feminism and what sexism looked and sounded like so I could spot it and say NO!”
