The last twelve months have been anything but normal. Not just for us, either. I know it’s been crazy hard on our kids. And, not only that, but it’s been a helluva year for the girls of the world, too. I know that I lost one of my heroes — the notorious RBG was a hero of mine. And I was crushed when she passed. But there was also the release of a very powerful movie about a very powerful woman — Wonder Woman. My family went to a private pre-screening of the movie, just the five of us. It was incredible. And every since then, my four year old daughter has referred to herself as Super Wonder Woman (and I don’t have the heart to correct her). So why not this year for Valentine’s Day Girl Superhero Cards?! Even if your son is giving them?
Because representation matters
Growing up we were told we can be anything. And, while that’s true, women and especially women of color, have obstacles in their way. And while I do my best to teach my daughters and son that both boys and girls (and everyone who identifies in between) are all valued. But there are just far more images of boy superheroes than girls. And that’s why I was so excited to see Wonder Woman 1984. My (almost) 5-year-old daughter was glued to the screen for the entire movie. She loved every action-packed minute of seeing a GIRL superhero.
So perhaps the boys and girls in your life will love these Valentine’s Day Girl Superhero Cards just as much as mine do!
