Female cartoonists and harassment

I thought I would share this to this community.

While this doesn't excuse the boring (and sometimes stupid) storylines Lynn had in her strip, it might explain why she sometimes appeared so hostile to men and not just her ex-husband. Cartooning is still a largely male-dominated field and it would surprise me if Lynn found that people were condescending and belittling her, especially at the beginning of her career.
