Fiction’s Fearless Females – Wonder Woman

To help celebrate International Women’s Day (March 8) and Women’s History Month (March), I along with some of WordPress’s best bloggers are teaming up to shine a spotlight on some of our favorite fearless females from movies, comics, television, and beyond.

This week’s entry is from the very amazing and talented artist and writer Kathleen from Graphic Novelty².  Kathleen and Nancy (you can read Nancy’s entry on Captain Janeway from Star Trek HERE) have an incredible site where they review great graphic novel, YA books, and contemporary novels. Swing by and give it a browse.

This in-depth and wonderful post is something everyone who is a fan of comic book history, American history, women’s empowerment, or personal growth should read.
