This morning, an old friend sent me this link because she saw it and thought of me. For those who don’t want to click through, it’s a blog post about DC apologizing to parents and little girls for not including female superheroes in one of their games.
This is awesome for a few reasons. First, DC apologized to a parent who writes a blog. So they’re listening!
Second, maybe (just maybe) DC is getting the message that women and girls consume superhero stuff. We read comics. We watch movies. We play board games with our daughters. And we want female superheroes! (WHEN DO WE GET OUR WONDER WOMAN MOVIE?!)
And third, I like that when people see feminism + nerd pursuits + board games + parenting, they think of me!
