In 1998 the Flemish daily De Standaard published a series of articles on the thoughts, ideas and perspectives of boys and girls in modern society.

He used the popular comic characters Suske And Wiske to illustrate that girls are getting stronger (left), and later that they still need to be better than boys to attain the same goals (right). The cool part is that Tom also referred to a well-known (well, over here at least) iconic use of these characters, namely in the illustration on the back of each album, as used here.
