Have you read Bitch Planet?

I’ve been enjoying this feminist graphic novel series for a year. I love it for the depictions of women and our physicality. There are tiny lithe women, thick glamazons and many women of colour. 

It’s a sci-fi dystopian world where non-conformist women are exiled to a prison planet nicknamed Bitch Planet. There are plans by the prison managers to have the women perform in games. The build to this is slow and I’m enjoying it. 

Each episode has the graphic novel then essays and reader responses. It is an explicitly feminist series which is rare. You can check it out here:


I’d love to hear your thoughts. It’s not a perfect series and I’m loving the great discussions in the essays. 

About natalieh

I'm a self described fat feminist 42 year old mother of two teenage minions who loves her high energy life partner of over 20 years. I love moving my body and sometimes do yoga, triathlons and dance like a fool. My next measure of success will be being more fierce and less fearful as I roll through my 40s.
