Sponsored by Tor Books and their #FearlessWomen campaign! Get a free tote bag, sticker, and a select #FearlessWoman book!
Princess Weekes, Assistant Editor of The Mary Sue (www.themarysue.com) breaks the mold of the oh-so-tired female narrative by challenging the ways we have come to accept female roles in film with a playful and engaging feminist clip-show-style film analysis.
Also included: A special video message from beloved fantasy author, Victoria, V.E. Schwab!
Princess 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 cultural 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?).
The show is guaranteed to bring a fresh perspective and a few side splitting laughs while promoting a healthy camaraderie among attendees.
