Moreover, I evoke an appalling incident that took place after the publication of the anthology Polish Women’s Comics.
A radio station invited a guest (comics publisher) to talk about many hardships women encounter in the comics industry.
A man (!) spoke about the situation of women in a male-dominated environment, while no women had been invited to the studio.
Polish media should revile similarly discriminating practices instead of perpetuating them, which is why I call attention to this outrageous incident. Unfortunately, such a situation is not a first when it comes to discussions about comics.
