The Wimmen's Comix Revolution - women cartoonists fight sexism in the comic book industry and make history.

In 1972, a group of women cartoonists in San Francisco created "Wimmen's Comix", an Anthology of Comics by women, challenging the sexism thet faced by the male dominated comic  book publishing industry.

The mission of Wimmen's Comix was to publish a comic book drawn by women cartoonists, and to leave fifty-percent of each issue open for new contributors. There was a rotating editor or co-editors and each issue had a theme.

There were eighteen issues of Wimmen's Comix published by the Underground Comic Press between 1972 through 1992, and over a hundred new cartoonists saw their work in print, some for the first time. Many other titles grew out of this groundbreaking anthology, and today we are scattered in all corners of the United States and Europe.

So come out and help us celebrate our 40th Anniversary and see the comic art show, plus meet the women cartoonists in person at the San Francisco Public Library Main Branch on Saturday, November 10, 2012.
