Escher Girls

Float like a butterfly, Sting like a WTF!?

This is a blog to archive and showcase the prevalence of certain ways women are depicted in illustrated pop media, specifically how women are posed, drawn, distorted, and/or sexualized out of context, often in ridiculous, impossible or disturbing ways that sacrifice storytelling.

See the "About" section in the sidebar for more details.

Escher Girls and Hawkeye sitting in a tree

So that “turn female characters into Hawkeye” thing I linked to has now apparently turned into a full blown thing, which is awesome. xD  For those that don’t know about it:

http://thehawkeyeinitiative.tumblr.com/

That’s the tumblr for it and

http://kotaku.com/5965037

That’s the Kotaku article about it. :)

It also makes me happy that a lot of pictures from the Escher Girls archives are there. :D  Part of why I made this blog is so that whenever people needed images like this, there’s a handy archive for it, and I’m glad people are using it!
