An eclectic group of artists collaborate with human rights defenders for an international anthology of resistance.
Radical politics, solidarity, and a dogged pursuit for a better tomorrow links the first-hand accounts in We Are Many: Defending Women and Sex Worker Human Rights. With a varied political and aesthetic sensibility, and an equal partnership between comic artists and human rights defenders, the anthology features profiles, reports, testimonies, and voices from the frontlines of Ukraine, Mexico, Sudan, Lebanon, Tonga, and more. A rough, energetic illustration of a sex workers’ collective fighting for legalization in Australia sits alongside a spunky collage of a trans woman rapping about empowerment in Brazil. The muslim women of Sri Lanka speak alongside the voices of unnamed feminists in Iraq. The cause of women’s rights even unites the warring nations of Armenia and Azerbaijan.
A Cypher Comics anthology curated by Beldan Sezen and Adam Shapiro, We Are Many> presents comics as eyewitnesses to grassroots justice movements.
