Rebuilding and Reinventing the Modern Girl Through Stories

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

We're in a post–Wonder Woman and Captain Marvel world, well into a time where we all know that girls and women can kick ass and be strong protagonists. That girls can grow up to be president or walk on the moon, or be a queen or a superhero. But a lot of old stereotypes that still persist. How do we reinvent the new girl order to build new characters for the enlightened girl? How do we pay tribute to the heroines of the past while still looking toward the future? What's the difference between writing established heroines and creating your own? What do creators and fans want out of a powerful female protagonist? Panelists Cecil Castellucci (Snow White), Sarah Kuhn (Batgirl), Nilah Macgruder (Marvel Rising), Seanan McGuire (Spider-Gwen), Danielle Paige (Mera), and moderator Jenn Fujikawa (Star Wars and Marvel.com) discuss the challenges of building modern heroines in a variety of mediums for the modern girl.
