Poyi Liu

    These visuals are powerful, especially when you see the perspective of the woman who is hired in America. This comic also takes an interesting approach to caregiving, but it uses humor: http://www.good.is/posts/community-based-comic-book-shares-stories-of-filipina-caregivers. I feel like since you've been so great about sharing female empowerment stories you'd also like the work of Rathi Varma- she uses comics to explore female empowerment. She's interested in connecting with people like you who are passionate about such issues: http://www.good.is/members/rathi-varma-5

      Wow, thanks Alessandra. Using comics to deliver stories and messages is a very wonderful approach to raising awareness. I see that the full book will not be released until 2014. I guess I'll have to wait for it ;) Thanks!
