Princess Weekes, Assistant Editor of The Mary Sue, will take a Black Widow dive into the history of female comic book/superhero movies starting with Jane Fonda's Barbarella before going into Wonder Woman and our hopes with Captain Marvel. The show will explore the common tropes in these films through a feminist, pop culture lens as well as why it took so long to get these movies done and done right. Plus representation issues (why is Storm still not done right guys?). As always, the show is guaranteed to bring a fresh perspective and a few side splitting laughs while promoting a healthy camaraderie among attendees.

Brett Kavanaugh and the Relationship Between Sexual Violence and Opposing Reproductive Rights


By Kylie Cheung on Fri,10:26
Sexual violence and opposing reproductive rights go hand-in-hand; they always have. Sure, that’s not to say there aren’t plenty of “pro-choice” men out there who have committed sexual assault, but an ideology that says women do not have the right to choose to not be pregnant is constructed around the very same disregard for women’s rights to safety and autonomy that underlie sexual assault.

Why More Female-Led TV Shows, but Not More Movies, Marvel?


By Rachel Leishman on Thu,1:24
Marvel sure likes to pretend to be female positive but continue to push their female heroes to the side. News that Wonder Woman writer Allan Heinberg would be heading a female-led series for Disney's upcoming dedicated streaming service seems promising, but it brings up a really good question: Why is Marvel afraid of women leading movies?
