What We Do: A Comic About Women in the Labor Force

Tuesday, 10 April 2012 09:14 By Lauren Weinstein and Anne Elizabeth Moore, Truthout | Graphic Journalism

041012ld fbThe last installment of Ladydrawers looked at gendered discrepencies in media hiring practices (catch up on all the strips here) and how the gender of the labor pool might affect media content. In this piece, we look at what might be missing from the media - in other words, at the issues disproportionately affecting women that somehow get missed in a male-dominated media environment. Welcome to "What We Do," the first of two strips with Anne Elizabeth Moore and Lauren Weinstein - and watch for "What We Look Like" next month.
