little girls get female superheroes better than grownups

Artist Alex Law draws female superheroes. The kicker is that he bases his designs on real little girls dressed up in their own idea of what sort of superhero they’d like to be. So instead of this sort of sexist crap (not by Law):


we get this (by Law… and an unnamed three-year-old):


which is awesome and all about imbuing a gal with strength and power she can enjoy for herself and not turning her into eye candy for someone else to enjoy.

We need to be waaaay better about not letting this attitude get beaten out of little girls as they grow up, the same way that it does not get beaten out of little boys. (See here for one example of how that happens to girls.)
