DC Women Kicking Ass

Thoughts, pictures, reviews and other stuff about the women in comics who kick ass. This is a feminist site. Deal with it.
"... just a dreadful little site that just basically compiles lists." - poster/DC Comics forum
"... provides a much-needed voice that is not often heard on traditional comic sites." - Wired's Geek Dad
... she's pretty amazingly ignorant of comics outside of the Batverse and some recent Wonder Woman, and seems pretty clueless about the way the industry works. That and she doesn't write that well at all." anonymous poster, Dreamwidth
" ... a phenomenal blog that's always up to date with female superhero news ..."

Does it bother you how even though we're making progress in getting more female-led and female-written titles, there also seems to be a large amount of sexism balancing it out ('fake' geek girls, Lois in Superman, the Amazons, everything with Steph and Cass)? It seems like one foot is going forward, but the other foot is going back.

Of course it bothers me. But I’d say its two steps forward one step back. There are some great things happening, but the crappy stuff sure plops a fly on the whipped cream.

  2. theladymonsters said: It’s essentially a backlash to feminism as it manifests in comics
