Dawn of the Unread - Issue #15

Margaret Cavendish (1623 – 15 December 1673) was an English aristocrat who spent her latter years in nearby Bolsover Castle and Welbeck Abbey. She was married to William Cavendish, the Lord Lieutenant of Nottinghamshire. Margaret was a prolific writer who subverted the norms of the day through her philosophy, poetry and fiction and was one of the earliest feminists. ROLLER GRRRLS is a comic that challenges female stereotypes and due to its violence, brings women into a traditionally male sphere. In this comic we see Margaret’s story updated, mirrored and celebrated.
