Princess Weekes, Assistant Editor of The Mary Sue, will take a Black Widow dive into the history of female comic book/superhero movies starting with Jane Fonda's Barbarella before going into Wonder Woman and our hopes with Captain Marvel. The show will explore the common tropes in these films through a feminist, pop culture lens as well as why it took so long to get these movies done and done right. Plus representation issues (why is Storm still not done right guys?). As always, the show is guaranteed to bring a fresh perspective and a few side splitting laughs while promoting a healthy camaraderie among attendees.

Donald Trump Finally Lashed Out at Christine Blasey Ford but Twitter Has Her Back

By Vivian Kane on Fri,6:17
Word out of the White House was that Donald Trump had "shocked" those around him with his "respectful" comments regarding Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, the woman who has accused Brett Kavanaugh of attempting to rape her in the 1980s. He had tweeted that he hoped she would testify in front the Senate Committee, and he'd defended Kavanaugh, saying he "doesn't deserve" to face these accusations, but he hadn't actually attacked Ford directly. And that was shocking to many.

The Legacy That Carrie Fisher Left Behind

By Rachel Leishman on Fri,4:55
Carrie Fisher has remained one biggest icons in fandom for a reason. If it wasn't her role as Princess Leia Organa in the Star Wars franchise, then it was her work as an author. She was the voice for young women everywhere, and she used her platform to talk about mental illness, drug addiction, and what it meant to accept yourself for who you are.

Chloe Dykstra Opens Up About Dealing With Harassers Online After Posting Her Essay

By Princess Weekes on Fri,4:45
The silence breakers have spoken up, but they have mostly been ignored, despite how prominent the movement is in the news. Women and men may feel more confident to speak up about sexual harassment they have experienced, but it doesn't mean they will see anything come of that and it also means opening themselves up further to abuse.

Post-Avengers 4 Marvel Continues to Take Shape as Eternals Movie Lands Director Chloe Zhao

By Dan Van Winkle on Fri,3:48
The Marvel Cinematic Universe has involved a lot of testing the waters along the way, and that's worked out for the most part, though there are certain elements we don't think they needed to wait on quite so long. So, the longer things go, the more risks they're willing to take, and after the next Avengers installment creates a major shift in the way they do things, part of what that means is a movie about the Eternals.

Company Does Something Right, Cancels Sexy Handmaid’s Tale Costume

By Kate Gardner on Fri,1:35
The internet has successfully shamed adult costume company Yandy into taking down their sexy Handmaid's costume. That's right, a sexy Handmaid, and not in the Bojack Horseman satirical sense—in the "we're going to shame you on every social media platform known to humanity" sense.

Dan Fogelman and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Reviews for Life Itself

By Kate Gardner on Fri,12:45
The reviews are pouring in for Life Itself, the latest film from This Is Us creator Dan Fogelman, and they're not pretty. Across the board, critics are panning the film; it currently holds a 14% on Rotten Tomatoes based on 70 reviews. It's worth noting that many of these reviews are from women, who found the film to be, in the words of IndieWire's Kate Erbland, a "demented, morbid epic built on bad storytelling."
