Program Details

When Superman first flew onto comic book pages, the Kryptonian set the bar for the future of the medium. Female superheroes also filled those pages from the start, but their portrayal has been a subject of controversy. This presentation examines how women are perceived in popular culture through the lens of comic books and asks “what are their real powers?”
