Riding for Two

Monica Johnson

Ever wanted to know what it feels like to be pregnant on public transportation? This autobiographical comic takes you on an adventure through it all. An intimate and witty analysis on public manners, social accountability, and the patriarchy. Includes shocking “accountability photos” of people who refused to offer Johnson a seat during her third trimester, and a “highly unscientific” analysis of the types of people who did offer her this courtesy. She also ventures some answers as to why some did, and what the simple act of offering a pregnant lady a seat has to do with anything and everything.
