Our resident cartoonist, Silvia Carrus, on that most hated of terms.

Silvia Carrus is an Italian illustrator and comic artist, living in London. She loves to make comics about feminism and animals, and has recently self-published the comic ‘Feminist Cat’. See her work on Tumblr.

This month’s comic depicts a man bemoaning his lot as a “friend” when his female friend should have noticed the “signs” he gave her of his undying devotion – like being nice and holding her hand for five seconds in 2010.
