“Mission: Equality – starring Barbie” Can't Post

As some here know, I completed my teaching degree last summer. My last project for my last course was to compose a graphic novel or story relevant to the course subject, “Women of the World.” I was quite happy with the result, but have not gotten much feedback besides my teacher’s positive reaction. It recently occurred to me that folks here might enjoy reading it. Some of you might even like to discuss some of the issues that it tries to cover.

Without any further commentary, because I’m interested in how it reads to people who have not been primed for it like my classmates were, I submit for your consideration Chapter 1 of “Mission: Equality.”

If after this you all would like to read the following seven chapters as a kind of discussion series, posted a few days apart, just speak up. If not, again say so and I will just appreciate any comments this gets.
