About Nay el Rahi
Nay calls herself an angry feminist that trades her claws for wings and for night vision, as she metamorphoses into an owl after hours. She is not a comic artist.
When Nay is not experimenting with humour, testing the limits of the poor souls taking her Gender and Communication class at LAU; or coercing political parties into the excruciating process of making their institutions women-friendly, she doodles angry shapes on the nearest blank space she can find. She likes to think of herself as sarcastic, but only because it’s an excuse to get away with outrageous opinions.
