Female superheroes can save the world, take care of themselves, think, plan, act, be independent, kick-ass, stand alone, fight back, work together, be strong, get the bad guys, generally take care of business and be brave. Positive images of females standing on their own two feet, and taking names, is empowering for females of ALL ages. Female superheroes don’t need to be rescued and carried around by their men, they have each other’s backs.
We need strong role models for girls, so they grow up to be confident, intelligent and ready to take on whatever comes their way.
Here’s some good new…Toys R Us just put out this brand new line of FEMALE SUPERHEROES for girls. The Superheroes are wonderful. There’s Wonder Woman, Bat Girl, Super Girl, and many more. Prices vary, depending on size of the superhero. The thing is…if you don’t buy them, these wonderful toys for girls will disappear. If girls are not TAUGHT about the strong females who save the world, companies will stop making them. It’s up to US to make sure that strong, clever, brilliant females are represented and available to girls. If we don’t want it to be a male dominated world then WE HAVE TO DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT. This is a step in the right direction.
