There’s a lot to be said in today’s political climate about female agency, capability, strength, vulnerability, and equality. In what is being called the era of #MeToo and #BelieveWomen, I have found inspiration in the heroines of my favorite comics. Their strength becomes my strength. Wanna save the world? Take some notes from these amazing women, and then go be your own brand of awesome.
