As one of the few women political cartoonists in the world, LIZA DONNELLY tackles women’s issues and feminism through a unique, shrewd, and humorous lens, using cartoons to comment on what it means to be a woman today. Donnelly is famous for her unique "live drawings" on her iPad, which bring high-profile events from presidential inaugurations to the Oscars, to life, and uses the same technique in her presentations-- drawing digitally onstage, in real time and transmitting it to the screen. Donnelly shares how her work hopes to inspire change, and how cartoons might help us move forward toward a more equitable and understanding future.
