Emma takes on issues that weigh disproportionately on women - that invisible labour and unpaid organising we do for others - and gives them a comic, feminist twist. Most of us carry some form of mental load - about our work, household responsibilities, financial obligations and personal life - but what makes up that burden and how it's distributed within households and understood in offices isn't usually equal or fair. From maternity leave (it's not a holiday!) to the male gaze and the medical establishment's treatment of women during childbirth, Emma skewers our modern lives in a way that is both hilarious and deadly serious. If you're not laughing, you're probably crying in recognition. Her comics also address the everyday outrages and absurdities of immigrant rights, income inequality and police violence.
