About the Author

Named one of the Six Women of the Year in 2018 by Parisian daily 20 minutes and praised by The New York Times, Elle, The Guardian, The Huffington Post, Marie Claire, and many others, EMMA is the author of the acclaimed The Mental Load which has already been translated into six languages. As a former activist for Stop harcèlement de rue (stop street harassment), she now channels her feminist passion into putting information out there through her incisive cartons, several of which have gone viral around the globe. Her subjects range from politics, feminism, the workplace, the environment and a wide range of current social issues. Her goal is to get her readers to think by themselves. Emma currently lives in Paris and also works as a software engineer.

UNA DIMITRIJEVIĆ was born in Bosnia, grew up in Scotland, and now lives in France. She translates from Serbo-Croat and French into English. Her translation of The Mental Load: A Feminist Comic was published by Seven Stories Press in 2018.


"Don't be fooled by the simplicity of these drawings. With each stroke of the pencil, Emma tears at the patriarchy and tarnishes the veneer of a society whose injustices she denounces." --Elle (France)

"Emma makes feminist ideas accessible." --Femme actuelle
