It was a stat destined to go viral: actress Gal Gadot earned just $300,000 for helming the box office smash hit Wonder Woman, while Henry Cavill apparently raked in $14 million—46 times more!—for his role in the 2013 Superman flick Man of Steel.
Trina Robbins didn’t know she was a trailblazer when she started drawing Wonder Woman in 1986. She just did what she had always done—make strong, feminist heroes. “Every comic I ever drew was feminist,” she says. “I couldn’t help it.”
At first, I didn’t realize that my family’s origin story was a little off. I have a distinct memory of showing my music teacher a copy of my dad’s senior yearbook, pointing out the pictures of my parents with no real awareness of anything strange. My sister and I would pore over the words my mother had inscribed in…
Superman has his strength and flight. Spider-Man has his webs and spidey sense. Batman has his rich kid’s disregard for property damage. But what does Wonder Woman have?

Most Twin Cities high school cross country and track teams have Somali students on the roster. Some of these prep runners have gone on to successful college and even professional running careers, like former Minneapolis South runner Hassan Mead, who represented the U.S. at the Rio Olympics.
In many ways, Everything, Everything is your typical teenage rom-com. It centers on Maddy, a beautiful but socially awkward young woman who’s allergic to everything—the air, grass, germs—and therefore has been sheltered from the world by her overprotective mother. But when a handsome teen named Olly moves in next…
The Pachuca Tuzas were crowned as the first champions of the Liga MX women’s soccer league after beating the Tijuana Xolas 9-1 in the championship game held on Saturday.
As a teenage girl coming of age in the 1980s, Sara* was uncomfortable with her body. She didn’t like her dark hair, so she tried bleaching it blonde with lemon juice. She was a good athlete, but still heavier than most of her classmates. And there was the matter of her breasts, which began growing—painfully and…
Ivanka Trump would like you to imagine a table.

The word “abortion” first appeared in the Democratic Party Platform in 1976, three years after Roe v. Wade made the procedure legal in every state.
