Lao Qiong's comic "She" is a cartoon collection from 1990 that is rarely seen in the Chinese-language comic scene. At that time, democratisation was in full swing in Taiwan, including a wave of women's movements and the founding of several women's groups. The comic "She" was not only created by a female cartoonist, but also deals with topics that are almost never dealt with in a humorous way in Taiwanese cartoons: Marriage, homosexuality, unemployment, women in politics, the relationship with the PRC from a women's perspective, etc. Reading "She" today serves as an interesting review of the role of women in the early days of Taiwan's democratisation.
