This chapter explores the importance of quotidian traumas and the emotional confusions of lived experience by analyzing the works of Phoebe Gloeckner, Debbie Drechsler, and Julie Doucet. Known for their stories of young women’s lives and for their individual comics, Gloeckner, Drechsler, and Doucet create powerful visual and textual metaphors for the visceral experiences of their early womanhood. All three carry on the legacy of Carolee Schneemann and her second-wave feminist peers. This chapter looks at the most powerful resonance of Schneemann’s themes, particularly that of “diaristic indulgence,” in Gloeckner, Drechsler, and Doucet. It also considers the notions of female adolescence and autobiography in the context of feminism.
