The patriarchy is falling. It's time to smash it. This graphic novel shows you how.

Patriarchy means "the rule of the father" and describes a system where men are in control. At least since the time of Aristotle, loud-mouthed men have called women weak and inferior. In entertaining comic book form, Smash the Patriarchy shames the culprits and salutes more than 100 inspiring women--from Pharaoh Hatshepsut to Mary Wollstonecraft to Petra Herrera--who stood up to them.

The book is not afraid to examine some of the worst crimes--public shaming, medical examinations, and the widespread murder and jailing of feminists around the world--as it calls on readers to finally smash the patriarchy forever.

These men get embarrassed: Aristotle, Jean-Jacques Rousseau, Immanuel Kant, Friedrich Nietzsche, Woody Allen and many more...

These women are celebrated: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Emily Dickinson, Queen Christina of Sweden, Arundhati Roy, Amanda Gorman, and many more...
