Cartoons That Express Everyday Girl Problems We All Face ...

By Jennifer

Canadian artist Cassandra Calin totally gets it: the struggle is real. Her comics illustrate just what it's like to be a girl, and how weird some of our problems are. Which of these can you relate to?

1 As Soon as We Get Home

2 Next Time, a Selfie

text, cartoon, sketch, comics, drawing, Next time, I'm just going to take a selfie, because then I know it'll look like me, at least.

3 Passport Photo

4 Chocolate Vs. PMS

5 Make-up Free Monday

6 Big Toes

7 Makeup Tutorials

8 Exercise

cartoon, comics, comic book, font, line art, Umm, yeah. This is pretty much me too, every run, every time, even after four years.

9 Red Lippie

10 Maternal Instincts?

cartoon, black and white, line art, comics artist, comics, I mean, kids and babies are great and all, but kitties? Oh my gosh, even cuter!

12 Stupid Shark Week

13 Half-Bun

face, black and white, cartoon, font, head, Honestly when I try this style, it looks like I just forgot to do the rest of my hair. Gigi Hadid I am not.

14 Ding!

15 Ugh, Mom!

16 Crop Tops... and Sweaters?

17 Hair Vs. Humidity

cartoon, black and white, line art, comics artist, comics, Sure, you just spent three hours flat-ironing your hair, and sure, it's only been half an hour... but guess what? It's humid, so now you're going to have the worst bad hair day.
