The goal of the Womens' Cartoon Index is to promote and recognize women cartoonists worldwide. All listings are those of professional artists. If you'd like to suggest a site or feature, please email us. As the site grows, we'll highlight current and historical women cartoonists.

Update July 29, 2008:
After being offline for quite a while, this site is back and will be updated as time permits (including many broken links). Feel free to email corrections and changes to [email protected]

Visit the Bookstore!
Each book has been hand-selected and is highly recommended. Learn about the history of women cartoonists or learn how to improve your own cartooning or extend your creativity. Check back frequently as we'll be adding more books (especially cartooning books and individual women cartoonist collections). If you have a book recommendation for the bookstore, please email us.

The Index:
Please let me know if any of these links are broken or out of date. Comments are welcome, as always.
