3. “I started this as a response to a very drunken ‘accusation’ of being a bad feminist. I thought it would be more productive to channel it into something that would show what my beliefs are and serve as a tool to show people that there’s a spectrum under which they can fall,” Hazarika told BuzzFeed.

4. “I do think a lot of feminists are constantly learning and examining their stands, and to have their journeys seen in a comic is (I hope) comforting,” Jogi told BuzzFeed.
