Becoming unbecoming is a beautiful graphic novel. Through simple beautiful illustrations and moving text it takes the reader on a heartbreaking journey.
‘Becoming Unbecoming explores gender violence, blame, shame, and social responsibility. Through image and text Una asks what it means to grow up in a culture where male violence goes unpunished and unquestioned. With the benefit of hindsight Una explores her experience, wonders if anything has really changed and challenges a global culture that demands that the victims of violence pay its cost’.
