Grab Back Comics is a curated collection of comics stories about sexual assault, harassment, rape culture, and advocacy. Telling these difficult personal stories is a political act, an act of love and resistance. Grab Back encourages artists to tell their own stories and the stories of others, and presents this work with pride and admiration. The project is intended to be a safe landing spot for people looking for first-person stories, media representations and educational resources.
