When women are not treated fairly, it has ripple effects throughout the entire economy. The leather and garment industry is no exception to this rule. In a recent conversation with the creators of “Bitchesgirls”, a documentary exploring the reality of working in the leather and garment industry, we learned about the gender-based discrimination that women face on a daily basis. This documentary is an important step in shedding light on these issues and helping to change them for the better.
Bitchesgirls: What inspired the creation of
“Bitchesgirls” is a series of comics created by writer and artist Mandy Timm and illustrator J.H. Williams III, who spoke with Comicosity about the origins of their project. “Bitchesgirls” tells the story of a group of people who are turned into estrogen-fueled monsters after being exposed to an experimental chemical while on vacation. The series is currently in its fourth volume, which was released in December 2017.
Timm and Williams started working on “Bitchesgirls” during the early days of their careers, when they were still trying to find their voice as creators. “We just wanted to do something that we loved,” Timm said. “I remember being really excited about it, and I think J.H.’s excitement rubbed off on me.”
The duo incorporated feminist themes into their work from the beginning, something that didn’t come easy for them. “It definitely wasn’t easy,” Williams said. “‘Bitchesgirls’ is one of those projects that came much later in our careers where we finally felt like we could be ourselves and not worry about what other people might think.”
One theme that runs throughout all four volumes is the idea of dealing with personal trauma head-on. In Volume 1, for example, the characters deal with their experiences after becoming monsters in different ways: some try to cope by drinking themselves into oblivion; others lash out at innocents; still others use their power to help
What is the message of Bitchesgirls
“Bitchesgirls,” an all-ages comic book created by writer Meredith Finch and artist Kelly Fitzpatrick, tackles the familiar power dynamics between women in a new and unique way.
The story follows four female friends who are fighting against the expectations put on them by society, their families, and each other. Their bond is tested as they navigate through puberty, relationships, and careers.
“Bitchesgirls” is a story about empowering girls to be themselves. It’s about breaking down the taboos that keep women from speaking out and from owning their own identities. It’s about challenging the idea that women must be passive victims or perfect mothers/wives.
The message of “Bitchesgirls” is that there is no limit to what we can achieve – as long as we stand together and fight for what we believe in.
What do you hope people take away from watching the series?
“Bitchesgirls” is a new series that is set in the world of professional wrestling. The show follows the story of two female wrestlers, Lizzie and Krissy, as they try to make it big in the wrestling industry.
Although “Bitchesgirls” is a new series, the creators have been working on it for years. They started out by creating a character named Lizzie and writing several scripts for her story. They then partnered up with an animator to create a pilot episode, and after that they started to get attention from networks.
Ultimately, they wanted people to take away from watching “Bitchesgirls” that there can be more than one path to success in life. No matter what your background or experience is, you can still achieve anything you want if you are willing to work hard enough.
Bitchesgirls: How does it feel to have your work criticized?
When we created “Bitchesgirls,” it was with the intent of creating something that could make people laugh and feel good. We never imagined that it would be met with such hostility and criticism. As the creators of this project, we feel like we’ve been punched in the gut time and time again.
We know that some people are offended by our work, but we refuse to take down our page or change our message because some people don’t like it. We believe in what we’re doing, and will continue to fight for what is ours until someone tells us to stop.
No matter how much backlash we receive, we will always stand up for ourselves and our work. It feels empowering to know that we can fight against anyone who tries to stop us, even if it means standing up to those who claim to be our friends.
What’s your advice for aspiring creators?
When it comes to the creative process, there are endless opinions and advice to be had. This is especially true for creators in the indie scene, where success often depends on word-of-mouth recommendation. So what does one thing aspiring creators can do to better their chances of carving out a successful career in art?
For starters, be determinate in your vision. No one knows what the future holds and no one can predict how popular an idea will become. Commit yourself completely to your project and don’t let anyone dissuade you from following through with your dreams.
Secondly, remember that rejection is a part of the process. It’s inevitable that some people won’t like your work, no matter how talented you are. Don’t take this personally and keep moving forward regardless.
Lastly, network! Meeting new people who believe in your vision is essential for success in any industry, not just art. Be willing to share your work with potential collaborators and clients and be open to meeting new people who may have good ideas for you or who could help market or distribute your work.
