16 Dec Feminist Princesses
I’ve been working on a blog post about great female superheroes to get your daughters started reading comic books. I think comic books have evolved SO much in the past 25 years when I started reading them. They are actually making a point of putting women in them that are strong and capable and intelligent – not just as love interests for the male superheroes. It’s pretty great. While googling “Gloria Steinem as a superhero” (because what feminist hasn’t googled that at least once, amiright?! (p.s. why hasn’t that been drawn yet? someone draw that please)) I discovered a great set of drawings of feminist women through the years AS DISNEY PRINCESSES. This mashup makes me happy like whoa you would not believe. I am printing them all and making them into paper dolls for my boyfriend’s three young daughters to play with. I’m for real stoked about this!
