Mujeres Alteradas Posted by on Feb 5, 2009 in Spanish Culture

Mujeres Alteradas is the title of a weekly comic strip where we get to know about women’s world and everything about it, focusing on men (husbands, boyfriends or lovers) and children. Married, single and widow women, teenagers, in their 20s, 30s or 40s, ugly, pretty, fat, thin, with or without boyfriend, successful in their jobs or out of work … they’re all in Maitena’s comic strips. Topics like plastic surgery, sexual satisfaction, going out on a date and more abound in these strips.
Mujeres Alteradas has been published weekly since 1993 in Para Ti, a traditional Argentinean women’s magazine and later it has also been published in La Stampa (Italia), El Mercurio (Chile), El País (Uruguay), El Nacional (Venezuela) and, since 1999 in the Sunday supplement of El País (España). Quino, a very famous Argentinean cartoonist says, “The best definition that comes to my mind about Maitena is that she doesn’t think before speaking. No reflective characters or useless bull. Maitena is spontaneous and fun and she doesn’t intend to be a “mirror that reflects reality”. On the contrary: she takes reality and the mirror and throws them out of the window.”

Here are some links for you to check out the strips of Mujeres Alteradas and other works by Maitena . Have fun and tell us what you think!
