Women’s History Month spotlight: New Yorker cartoonist Helen Hokinson

It always amazes us how many incredible women in the history haven’t attracted the renown they deserve.

Example:  Helen Hokinson (1893-1949): Over a 20-year time span, she contributed 68 covers and more than 1,800 cartoons to The New Yorker. Hokinson had over 3 volumes of her cartoons published in the 1950s.

Thanks to TheClock, the student newspaper of Plymouth State U., for bringing  Hokinson to our attention.
