Autism in women and girls is still not widely understood, and is often misrepresented or even overlooked. This graphic novel offers an engaging and accessible insight into the lives and minds of autistic women, using real-life case studies. The charming illustrations lead readers on a visual journey of how women on the spectrum experience everyday life, from metaphors and masking in social situations, to friendships and relationships and the role of special interests. Fun, sensitive and informative, this is a fantastic resource for anyone who wishes to understand how gender affects autism, and how to create safer supportive and more accessible environments for women on the spectrum.

1. Introducing Autism and Gender 2. 'You're not autistic' 3. Pretending to be Normal 4. From Passive to Assertive 5. Identity and Interests 6. Future Research

Dr Sarah Bargiela is a Clinical Psychologist with a research interest in autism and gender. She works clinically in the NHS and in private practice and holds a Doctorate in Clinical Psychology and MA in Child Development from UCL and a BA in Graphic Design and Illustration from Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design.
