Anybody else remember this episode? In it, a female villain called Femme Fatale is stealing millions of dollars in Susan B. Anthony coins. Naturally, the Powerpuff Girls go to stop her. She then convinces them that men are all horrible because female superheroes aren’t as well known as male superheroes, even asking Blossom to name some to where her only answer is Wonder Woman.

They start acting bitter,

I'm reading it as more bluster or humour based. But the tone of protecting daughters is still important. People don't protect something or someone they don't value.
Deanna Dahlsad's comment, January 21, 5:01 PM
@Laura Brown I can't agree with you. Wearing shirts about guns & violent threats isn't the answer to rape culture. In fact, this stinks more of rape culture than anything. It's about a man's property; not respect or a woman's value.
Laura Brown's comment, January 21, 1:54 PM
I wish my Father had been at least a little more like that. Though the shoulder baring shirt with all the warnings does send a mixed message. I don't really have a big problem with the message itself. But, my sister was violently raped and I felt that desperation and anger and felt it again in my own experience too. I don't think protecting a daughter means you see her as property.

 We know she’s a girl. We can never emphasize this enough, because this is the fate of colored girls globally right now: the denial of their girlhood, the denial of their childhood, and the constant state of risk and danger they are living in.

100 Important Women in History

100 Important Women in History | Herstory | Scoop.it

Welcome to the website of the 100 Most Important Women of All Time: a page of 100 women who history would not be the same without. I, Shelby Ellery, created this site as a gold award project, the highest award that can be awarded in Girl Scouting that has to take at least 50 hours to complete. I chose this project because I believe that women aren't recognized enough. I can name so many men that I have been taught by my teachers, but I really can't name all that many women. This site is a resource for all those people out there who are just like me, no matter what age, curious about how women also affected who people are today and who the world wouldn't be the same without. Take a moment to choose someone you have never heard of and look through this window into their soul, who they really were or are.

I love that this was a Girl Scout project too!
