When the fabulous Guerrilla Girls were asked to create a poster commemorating the 20th anniversary of the disturbing l’École Polytechnique massacre aka Montreal massacre - a gunman entered a university, separated the male and female students, and proceeded to shoot only the women in the name of "fighting feminism" -  they immediately said yes.

BY Vanessa in Artsy |

It's always nice to see a woman makin' it big in a dude's world. Comics are generally written by fellas and for fellas.
