What Makes Girls Sick and Tired is a graphic novel that summarizes the daily and never ending discrimination and injustice towards women and girls of all kinds, including women of color, the LGBTQ community, and indigenous. This 5-minute read can create quite the conversation between those who are wanting to understand and those who go through any number of the situations talked about in the novel. The comic doesn’t just limit the conversation to sexism, but also gives insights into different personalities and lifestyles. This is a peak into the life. It’s honest and doesn’t dare to sugar coat, because we all are sick and tired. We are all just wanting to be heard and are crave for changes and understanding.
This is a book that should be in every home, school, and office. I highly recommend you buy a copy for yourself, your daughter, niece, cousin, or friend. It will be worth it. Have a conversation. Make a change.
