Friends of Lulu was a nonprofit founded 25 years ago to get more women and girls involved in comics-and it worked! Hear from founding board members Jackie Estrada (Exhibit A Press, Comic Book People), Heidi MacDonald (The Beat), Trina Robbins (Pretty in Ink, Wimmen's Comix), Liz Schiller (Strawberry Jam Comics), and Anina Bennett (Boilerplate, Heartbreakers) how the ideas FoL promoted in 1994 helped create the explosion of comics for a more diverse audience today. Find out how 30 women meeting in a coffee shop during Comic-Con in 1993 grew into a national organization that published news, comics, and a retailer handbook; organized panels and conferences; and gave out the annual Lulu Awards.
