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

Today is International Women’s Day - Let’s Celebrate

Today is the 105th International Women’s Day. The theme this year is “The Gender Agenda: Gaining Momentum.” 

It’s hard at times to keep the movement forward in focus given the war on women’s rights on the past year. For every piece of good news, there is a piece of bad news. The good news is the President Obama signed the Violence Against Women act yesterday. The bad news is that there are 22 members of the United States House and 31 members of the US Senate who voted against it.

In the micro level of comics it also seems like for every two steps forward there is one step back. 

But let’s focus on the positive today. Let’s focus on the things that make us happy and give us hope. 

What is it in superhero comics that you think is worth celebrating for women, right now? What best represents how you want to see women portrayed. Please let me know. You can see what others have said in the past this blog and I welcome your submissions.

Sitting above my home office is one my favorite pieces of superhero artwork. The piece by Lucy Knisley is, I think, close to perfect for today. 

Every Woman, a Wonder Woman!
