    Certifiable genius Alison Bechdel (she won the MacArthur “Genius” Award in 2014,) is an American cartoonist best known for the beloved syndicated strip, “Dykes to Watch Out For.” Her contribution also includes the Bechdel Test, which measures gender bias in film. After putting the long-running “Dykes to Watch Out For” on hiatus, Bechdel released the graphic memoir Fun Home, later adapted into a Tony Award-winning musical in 2015. In 2021, she published a long-anticipated follow-up memoir, The Secret to Superhuman Strength.
