Since her beginnings at The Guardian, Posy Simmonds has been a precise and astute observer of women’s position in society. Her graphic novels, named after their protagonists Gemma Bovery, Tamara Drewe and Cassandra Darke, also satirically reflect society – and are peppered with references to literary classics. This curator-guided tour highlights the feminist aspect of Posy Simmonds’s oeuvre and pays tribute to her importance as a female pioneer and political cartoonist.
