Biographical Note for Guracar, Genny (1936-) : Using the pen name Bulbul (Turkish for Nightingale), Genny Guracar produced cartoons and comics which “reflect the struggle for the wholeness and full human status of women, elders, children, people of color, and mother earth.” Born in Chicago and graduating from the University of Michigan with a degree in design, Guracar began moonlighting as a cartoonist in the 1970s and went on to acclaim for her feminist perspective cartoons which appear in many newspapers, magazines, and books.
