Women, men & minorities in geek culture and pop culture
In a world where comic books are filled with superhuman men and women with little to distinguish them beyond their breast size, female fans are starving for strong female leads and interesting, empowering female characters.
Girls in Capes strives to sate that hunger with articles, features, and content focusing on positive female characters, as well as women in the industry. Our readers want entertainment featuring strong female characters that are not sexualized or dependent on male characters and are open to LGBTQ characters. Girls in Capes will focus secondarily on other gender issues in comics and geek culture, such as LGBTQ issues and the depiction of masculinity in comics and geek culture.
On our site, you’ll find articles on every aspect of underrepresented groups in geek culture and pop culture. If you don’t see it, it’s probably on its way!
Our sections include Comics & Graphic Novels, TV & Film, Fiction, and Subculture. There’s something for everyone at Girls in Capes, so we’d love to have you join The Team and find us on Facebook and Twitter.
You can learn a little bit more about our mission and founding in our first post.
