The characters in the comic books we read and the cartoons we watch impact the way we see ourselves and the world around us.

Maybe you watched Lisa Simpson take up vegetarianism and had a go at a meat-free month yourself. Or maybe you saw Lucy giving psychiatric advice to Charlie Brown and realized at that moment what your career path would be.

Cartoon characters may only be drawings on a page, but they are some of the most influential, albeit imaginary, figures in our lives.

MAKERS highlights a wonderful collection of female cartoon characters who were ahead of their time. Take a look!
