I finally illustrated this conversation in honor of the 6th (!) NWSL season which kicks off tomorrow. Support these players and this league – get thee to a game ASAP!
P.S. I feel like I can’t post anything without the disclaimer that I know everything is awful and scary in the world right now. But I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I firmly believe that supporting women’s professional sports is a powerful and enjoyable way to combat a culture of sexism and misogyny. So go to a game! Let’s enjoy ourselves while we burn it all down.
It was truly a dream come true to make something for these incredible women. As someone who loves watching sports (Go Reign! Go Storm!) but cannot stomach the sexism, racism, and toxic masculinity endemic to sports culture, finding this feminist sports podcast was a revelation. Check it out!
This is my love letter to the Seattle Reign for the 2017 season (here is last year’s). Actively supporting the NWSL (and the WNBA) has been a powerful tool in keeping me sane under our current administration. I am 100% serious when I say that supporting women’s professional sports will not only give you strength to keep going, it could help change the world.
Seattle Storm comic coming later this summer, I promise.
