Happy International Women’s Day 2017

Growing up, I was always partial to heroines in comic books, sci-fi, and fantasy. Some of my favorite characters growing up were The Huntress, Catwoman, Wonder Woman, Xena Warrior Princess, and Seven of Nine. Many people might point out that my interest in these characters as a teenage boy was probably less than virtuous. It could be argued that these characters are not exactly feminist role models, and were specifically designed to appeal to young men on a more primal level. I won’t deny the latter, but I would argue to former. In my opinion, all those characters represent strong, independent women, and that was part of their appeal to me. So, here is to all the warrior women out there: happy international women’s day!

Until next time,

-T.N.B.
