Maggie gets a Master’s in Gender Studies.
My second in a series of sequels to the infamous “Maggie Goes on a Diet” book, inspired by @fatandtheivy
Also see “Maggie Gains Back the Weight and Learns to Accept Her Body”

This is awesome. (But why is she not wearing a master’s gown?)

I was expecting someone to notice the gold tassel first. :D I actually did a lot of research into academic regalia, but found very little visual documentation of the difference between master’s gowns and bachelor’s gowns, so I just went with the more visually distinctive look. Likewise with the tassel which ideally would be black and on Maggie’s left, but that wouldn’t read in the illustration well. I did get the hood color right, though.
