THIS PRIMER ON FEMINISM AND MEDIA LITERACY TEACHES YOUNG READERS WHY IT MATTERS This primer on feminism and media literacy teaches young readers why it matters The League of Super Feminists&nbspis an energetic and fierce comic for tweens and younger teens. Cartoonist&nbspMirion Malle guides readers through some of the central tenets of feminism and media literacy including&nbspconsent, intersectionality, privilege, body image, inclusivity and more; all demystified in the form of a witty,&nbspdown-to-earth dialogue that encourages questioning the stories we're told about identity. Malle's insightful&nbspand humorous comics transport lofty concepts from the ivory tower to the eternally safer space of open&nbspdiscussion. Making reference to the Bechdel test in film and Peggy McIntosh's dissection of white privilege&nbspthrough the metaphor of the "invisible knapsack,"&nbspThe League of Super Feminists&nbspis an asset to the&nbspclassroom, library, and household alike. Knights and princesses present problems associated with consent; superheroes reveal problematic&nbspstereotypes associated with gender; and grumpy onlookers show just how insidious cat-calling culture can&nbspbe. No matter how women dress, Malle explains, there seems to always be someone ready to call it out.&nbspThe League of Super Feminists&nbsparticulates with both poise and clarity how unconscious biases and&nbspproblematic thought processes can have tragic results. Why does feminism matter? Are feminists man-haters? How do race and feminism intersect? Malle answers&nbspthese questions for young readers, in a comic that is as playful and hilarious as it is necessary.
