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 ..." -Nerdbastards.com

A Worthy Comic Project to Think about Supporting

The problem of street harassment is the focus of a comic book that is trying to get funded. The project is being done with input from HollabackPhilly but is addressing a global issue:

Our goal is to spread the word that street harassment is not okay. It’s not a compliment, and it’s not something to be taken lightly.  Street harassment affects women and girls, and can be particularly violent when directed towards members of the LGBT community. Not only can it have serious effects on people’s self-esteem and sense of safety, but it also says something big about who we are as a culture: if we accept street harassment, that means we accept the objectification of women, gender-policing, and gender-based violence. We can do better! The first step is to start talking about it. The comic book, and especially the choose your own adventure computer based version, will help youth think through this difficult issue in an accessible way. Your support will help make that conversation happen.

The comic will focus on three characters Red and Yellow and Blue, a male. Here’s a look at some of the art.

They are trying to raise $5016 and they are about half way there. The comic will be used for educational workshops on street harassment against women and LGBT folks and bystander intervention. 

You can read more here. I know there are a lot of requests for funding for comics projects but this one has the potential to impact on society as well. Please take a moment to check it out.
