Alison Bechdel: Why she kicks ass
She is a cartoonist, best known for her comic strip Dykes To Watch Out For.
In 2006 her graphic memoir Fun Home was released which saw her become a best selling and critically acclaimed author.
Dykes To Watch Out For is where the Bechdel Test comes from. (check here to see if a movie passes the Bechdel Test).
In November 2006 she was invited to sit on the Usage Panel of the American Heritage Dictionary.

Quote: “The secret subversive goal of my work is to show that women, not just lesbians, are regular human beings.”
