One Possible Reason Why Fewer Women Work In Comic Stores Than You Might Otherwise Expect

2012-06-07 04.41.33

Yesterday, author Jennifer Williams tweeted about her very recent experience working in a comic shop in Salem, MA, Harrison’s Comics. But she didn’t work there for very long. This is why.

Harrison’s Comics tweeted their response.

But if Harrison’s Comics were reticent, Williams had more to share. Here is a few select tweets, compiled with her permission.

I’m going to take a brave and courageous stand here on Bleeding Cool, and say that, whatever is true or not, whatever can be proved or not, that, in general, comic stores should probably avoid describing the room at the back as a “rape room”. Whether to a rape survivor or not, whether to a woman or not, whether to themselves or not.
