"Polgreen has said that at least 50 percent of contributors for each issue [of Symbolia] will be women. “The lack of women is an ongoing issue in both the journo and comics worlds, and this is a way to address it,” says Polgreen, who also runs a Tumblr called Graphic Ladies!?, a showcase of women’s work."
