Liza Donnelly: Cartoonist, Historian, Advocate

Young Liza had succeeded in fulfilling a lifelong dream.

In 1979 Liza Donnelly joined three other women as the female force of New Yorker cartoonists;
there were more than ten times that many male cartoonists contributing to the magazine then.

Not long before that she was made aware that she was a “woman cartoonist,”
prior to that she thought of herself as an adjective-less “cartoonist.”

According to NBC News:

Then Liza began speaking to groups and found she had a talent for that,
especially in encouraging women to pursue their dreams.

All this is part of an NBCNews report/profile of Liza.
