International Women’s Day (IWD) is celebrated annually on March 8. It’s a global day that honors the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women. What better day is there to consider the award-winning work of editorial cartoonist Signe Wilkinson. Signe is a member of the Chestnut Hill Meeting in Philadelphia, Pa., and trustee of Friends Publishing Corporation. As a political cartoonist, Signe creates weekly cartoons for Philadelphia Inquirer, Daily News, and Inquirer.com.
Signe has a new book out, “Herstory,” which celebrates the 100th year since the 19th Amendment was passed. The book covers various political and social issues through Signe’s unique eyes. It’s personal. And very funny.
