In case you have a friend who still needs to be reminded of the meaning, these women have made it easier for you.

1. Meet 29-year-old Delhi-based illustrator, Pia Alize Hazarika and 24-year-old Mumbai-based writer, Malathi Jogi.

2. Together, they run a comic miniseries on Tumblr called Custom Cuts that explains feminism for those who are still in the dark about it in 2017.

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.

5. “When you say you’re a feminist, people automatically club you under the ‘Feminazi’ label — which is perhaps why a lot of women tend to distance themselves from the movement.”

“We hope [the comic] is also able to remind us gently why we can and must reclaim feminism,” she added.
