“15 Biographies And Memoirs Of Amazing African Women” / Huffington Post / Patricia Furstenberg / May 10, 2018

Marguerite Abouet is an Ivorian writer of graphic novels best known for her Aya series.

The series is one of the few works of postcolonial African fiction that focuses almost entirely on the middle class. Although not entirely autobiographical, the story is based on the author's life in Côte d'Ivoire. It was adapted into a critically acclaimed animated film, "Aya de Youpougon".
