What SuperGirl Looks Like

Girls are excited to see SuperGirl! Many feminists are happy to finally see a female superhero on television. While many are applauding the increased diversity in Hollywood, CBS Network decided to create a SuperGirl who looks like the promotional picture above.

In reality, SuperGirl is more likely to look like:  ALL OF US!

We know that diversity is not just about gender, but also includes race and ethnicity.  SuperGirl is a woman, however, there are plenty of ethnically diverse representations of women superheroes.  They all have a story to tell.  We welcome more!

  1. I love the idea of “super girl” yet the pictures are just more of the same old depictions of what makes for a super female. Flowing hair, large breasts, small waist, toned body and tight clothing. I totally agree that it’s important to keep our bodies healthy and toned, I feel it’s unhealthy to project one image of what that would look like. Our feminine bodies come in all sizes, just like the men. Let’s take our attention to loving our bodies for the way in which we have been given, and keep our bodies healthy for the vehicle they are. When our bodies are in balance we have an abundance of energy to achieve whatever we desire.
