TED Thursday: Bring on the female superheros!

Every Thursday I will be choosing and posting a TED Talk that I think should be shared with you. I will not go at length about the benefits of it; they speak for themselves! Instead, I will provide you with the quick presentation blurb for it from TED Talk. You take it from here! This week, the TED Talk I choose to share with you is:

Bring on the female superheros!
with Christopher Bell

Why is it so hard to find female superhero merchandise? In this passionate, sparkling talk, media studies scholar (and father of a Star Wars-obsessed daughter) Christopher Bell addresses the alarming lack of female superheroes in the toys and products marketed to kids — and what it means for how we teach them about the world. “

I have very recently become very interested with Wonder Woman after watching an animated movie that sorta blew my mind on Netflix. I guess that would be the reason this talk caught my eye.
