You know I’m all about empowered women in film and television, and I think girls need to watch BLACK PANTHER to see the strong women portrayed in the film. BUT, at no time is it okay to male bash! I’ve got a daughter and a son, and I want them both to be strong and empowered. It’s just that there are lots more strong male role models than there are women role models.
I’ll tell you what, though. As a little girl, some of my favorite shows were Electra Woman and Dyna Girl, The Bionic Woman, Wonder Woman, and Isis. I DID get some girl power in my youth, though there definitely were more male dominated shows.
Celebrate with your girls this International Women’s Day!
