(Unless you think naked ladies are pretty. O.K., you might, but that's not the point.) This one, by Lyra Hill and Anne Elizabeth Moore, gets specific about how perceptions of women as content in comics could contribute to a hostile work environment - one that affects home life, career longevity and, as we'll see next week, income.
