Iconic cartoonist Jacky Fleming returns with her first book in over 10 years
Jacky Fleming is a feminist cartoonist whose work first became known through her series of pre-internet postcards which reached women around the world by snail mail. Following a foundation year at the Chelsea School of Art, she went on to study Fine Art at Leeds University, where her contemporaries formed bands like the Mekons, and the Gang of Four. Her first published work, which appeared in Spare Rib, was a university essay for feminist art historian Griselda Pollock which Fleming handed in as a cartoon strip. Since then her work has featured in many publications including the Guardian, the Independent, New Statesman, New Internationalist, Red Pepper, Observer, Diva, You magazine and the Big Issue. She has published six books of cartoons, The Trouble with Women is her seventh.
"Jacky Fleming...is brilliantly, mordantly funny and extremely clever, and these are her finest drawings yet... The book is savagely funny and wonderfully constructed, so that you start off giggling uncontrollably but then grow quieter at each successive misogynistic shocker... There isn't a man, woman or child who wouldn't benefit from spending time with this." -- India Knight * The Sunday Times * "Fleming ably skewers the Great Men of History, not to diminish their own works but to highlight those women who were trodden underfoot... A perfect gift for all genders, ages and political persuasions but is sadly confined to the humour section rather than the place it really belongs - the school curriculum." -- Laura Sneddon * Independent on Sunday * "Fleming ably skewers the Great Men of History, not to diminish their own works but to highlight those women who were trodden underfoot... A perfect gift for all genders, ages and political persuasions but is sadly confined to the humour section rather than the place it really belongs - the school curriculum." -- Laura Sneddon * Independent on Sunday * "This book is an utter delight - it does something I always admire, making very serious points but doing so through the medium of humour and satire. And oh my god, it does it so very well, text and cartoons working perfectly together here - I had to pause my reading frequently because I was laughing too much to continue to the next page." -- Joe Gordon * Fordbidden Planet * "A collection of withering, laugh-out-loud commentaries and illustrations regarding women's lot... The perfect gift for a burgeoning feminist daughter." -- Jane Graham * The Big Issue *
