Description

What does it mean for a woman to be strong - especially in a world where our conception of a hero is still so heavily influenced by male characters like Batman, Spiderman and Superman?

This book explores this subject, offering advice tailor-made for the fan-girl. Andrea Towers, who works in public relations at Marvel Entertainment and has written about superheroines for outlets such as Entertainment Weekly, outlines some of the primary traits heroic women can call upon, like resilience, self-acceptance and bravery, pulling in stories from real-life women, as well as figures from the pop-culture pantheon.

She also interviews the creators of popular fictional heroines, who discuss how they drew from their own experiences to develop these protagonists and how, conversely, their own creations continue to inspire them.
