Womyn's music and music by women

via the Guggenheim Foundation Page


Alison Bechdel is an internationally recognized cartoonist. For much of her thirty-year career she skulked on the cultural margins, writing, drawing, and self-syndicating the comic strip Dykes to Watch Out For. The generational chronicle, “one of the preeminent oeuvres in the comics genre, period,” (Ms.) ran regularly in over fifty LGBT publications in North America and the UK. Many award-winning collections of Dykes were published in book form by an independent feminist press, and were translated into several languages.

During her Guggenheim Fellowship term, she will be working on her third family memoir, an inquiry into the nature of family itself that will draw on sources from Margaret Mead to Family Systems Therapy to the complex sibling relationships between Alice, Henry, and William James.

Womyn Making Waves would like to congratulate Ms. Bechdel on her award and we are looking forward to her new book.
