Bring on the female superheros

This is one of THE BEST TED talks that I have watched. It ties in with a post I wrote some years ago about how to talk to little girls.

In this TED talk, Christopher Bell, a media studies scholar, "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".

With an 11-year old girl in my life, and having just spent 9 days with 20 x 16 year old girls, this talk speaks to me.
