Inked: An Interview with Alison Bechdel
As part of its Transforming Lives Documentary Film Project, the Institute for Women's Leadership at Rutgers University features the following interview with comic artist Alison Bechdel (see Dykes to Watch Out For). Mimi Zander -- a Rutgers University senior, IWL Leadership Scholar and awarding-winning filmmaker -- is the lucky duck who interviewed Bechdel. In the interview, Bechdel discusses how internalized misogyny at the beginning of her drawing career prevented her from drawing women. She could only draw women if she thought of them as lesbians. Of course, this all passed. But it's always interesting to hear about an artists' process and journey.
