Profile Picture

No Girls Allowed is a graphic novel that takes you on a girls only adventure around the world. There are seven stories about women who refused to settle for the status quo and did not let their gender hold them back. Starting off in Egypt around 1500 BCE we're introduced to Hatshepsut whose father is a pharaoh. This story centers on her struggle to gain the title of pharaoh, which would be rightfully hers if she were male.
