Silvia Carrus is an Italian illustrator, comic artist and writer. Her work focuses on gender equality and other social issues, often in a light hearted and humorous way while still marking on their importance. She has taken part in a variety of comics anthologies that focus on telling stories about and from women and non-binary people such as Dirty Diamonds Anthology, and has made monthly feminist comics for feminist websites such as The F Word and Femsplain. She also enjoys making small self published funny comics mixing animals and social issues for all ages (such as 'Feminist Cat' and 'Social Justice Penguin') and selling them at Comic Cons around the UK.
