This work in progress will consist in the presentation of a postdoctoral research project aimed at investigating the role played by graphic narratives in the popularisation of feminist stances on gendered abuse in Italy and beyond. The project, funded by the FWO (Research Foundation Flanders), is built around the hypothesis that graphic novels and comics represent a crucial resource in the area of art-activism against sexist violence, given their ability to use the cross-discursive system of words and images to convey complex narrative structures while, at the same time, remaining accessible to a wide audience.
