I don't know what it is, but I have absolutely no interest in watching Supergirl. Maybe I'm just not into people running around in spandex jumpsuits. Or maybe I'm skeptical that Hollywood can actually make a strong, compelling female super hero. However, after reading this Variety article, perhaps I should give it a shot. I like shows that are purposefully diverse in their casting. However, I've heard that the show isn't really that great for female empowerment. So, what, I wonder, is the disconnect between their intentions and the show?
I write about power dynamics in relationships, the empowerment of women, and the ethical and moral dilemmas love can create in our lives. This is a space where I meditate on those themes and share them with the word. Who knows, my next novel may start right here...
