“It doesn’t mean that you hate men. It means equal rights. If you’re doing the same job, you should be compensated and treated in the same way.”

American actress, Charlize Theron (Oscar nominee for the movie Bombshell)

Signe Wilkinson captured this sentiment in 1988 with her cartoon, Wage Gap. Signe is the first female cartoonist to win the Pulitzer Prize for Editorial Cartooning (1992) and her editorial cartoons are syndicated by the Washington Post Writers Group. She is the recipient of four Overseas Press Club Awards and two Robert F. Kennedy Journalism Awards for cartooning.

Today’s cartoon honors the political cartoonist, Signe Wilkinson. Political she is but don’t let that bother you. Signe’s cartoons are smart and cut to the core of what she wants to say through her art. I love her funnier commentaries like today’s cartoon. If you’d like to see more, you can check out her work in The Quaker Way.

Join us Wednesday, as we present comedian Jen Kober. Her comedic style will have you in stitches and loving her open heart.

Have a great day, and make sure to laugh every day.
