Una is an artist, academic and comics creator whose work aims to explore lived experience within a socio/historical context. Her self-published graphic narratives have covered disability, psychosis, political activism and violence against women and girls. This is her first graphic novel. She lives in Yorkshire.
'Unflinching, heartbreaking and utterly compelling. Una's story explores how the public silencing of women's voices too often creates a private hell.' - Emma Jane Unsworth; 'Male violence against women is a major problem - for all of us. This exploration of blame and shame brings home that fact in an immediate way, but also with great delicacy.' - Mary Talbot; 'This is a beautiful, haunting, take on Peter Sutcliffe's reign of terror, and the women and communities he destroyed. The bare fact is, as Una beautifully explores, that females are living under a reign of patriarchal power that requires us to take the rough with the rough. Except we don't. Una illustrates - through prose and graphics - how this fightback is taking place. Consume this book, and be prepared to join the revolution.' - Julie Bindel; 'Delicate in construction yet uncompromising in message, Becoming Unbecoming is an astonishing testament to the potency of visual metaphor.' - Andy Oliver; 'Make no mistake, this is one of the most important comics works of 2015.' - Broken Frontier: Comic of the Week; 'Brilliant, brave and fiercely intelligent... I read it in one sitting.' - Kerry Hudson; 'Touching, moving and tackling a really serious subject. A wonderful, wonderful book.' - Jenni Murray, BBC Radio 4 Woman's Hour; 'Honest, matter-of-fact and absolutely gut-wrenching... shows what happens when women refuse to be silent. Read this. Get angry. Start shouting.' - Emerald Street; 'A sensitively rendered yet powerful exploration of the blame and shame culture that surrounds sexual violence... Becoming Unbecoming should be read by everyone.' - Pamreader
