BOOM! Preview: Girlsplaining: A (Sorta) Memoir

Girlsplaining explores the subjects that have shaped her life: from body shaming to the exploration of her sexuality, and from the representation of women in the media.

Why do we fear the word “vulva” so much? Do we really have to be ashamed of our body hair? Why do gender roles in children’s toys seem to be stuck in the ‘50s? With a healthy sense of humor, an open heart, and unsparing candor, Klengel looks back on her childhood through the lens of the popular culture that shaped her identity and examines what being a woman today means to her (and really, a whole lot of us!).

Created by Katja Klengel
Colors by Adrian vom Baur & Katja Klengel

Release Date: March 3, 2021
