Ink-Stained Amazons and Cinematic Warriors: Superwomen in Modern Mythology

Tuesday, June 10
5:30–7:30 pm

Ink Stained AmazonsTo accompany our exhibit Pioneers, Professionals, and Politicians, we are proud to host Jennifer Stuller’s program on pop culture women who continue to break down barriers and forge new paths. From Wonder Woman to Buffy Summers, Emma Peel to Sydney Bristow, Charlie’s Angels to the Powerpuff Girls, superwomen are more than just love interests or sidekicks who stand by their men.  This conversation will examine women’s representations in media and women’s roles as media makers, inspiring us to think more deeply about gender images and storytelling.
