Heroine’s Handbook

The Heroine’s Handbook provides tools to look at media with a critical eye, ask questions, and support diverse creators and voices. They are designed to help you advocate for equality and justice in your fandom and open a dialog to discuss issues in video games, comics, film, and television.

Inclusive Gaming

Table top and roleplay gaming can be an incredibly fun and immersive experience whether you’re an experienced gamer or just starting out. It is a unique experience that allows one to experience new worlds, identities, and adventures while building community along the way. However, sometimes that experience has been a little less than welcoming to everyone.

In this handbook, we are going to look at ways that as Game Masters (GMs) we can create welcoming and inclusive spaces for everyone! Having an inclusive game space requires that the GM and players welcome anyone to the table regardless of how they might look, think, or what their background may be. In a community where we quickly accept dwarves, elves, spell casters, and dragons it’s almost funny to think that there still exist issues in inclusion. Yet some still struggle with the concept of “other.” The sad result is that players are made to feel uncomfortable, pushed out of spaces, and ultimately not being able to enjoy table top gaming.

Our goal is to change that by creating our own spaces, so thank you for joining us in that journey!

Villainesses

This Heroine’s Handbook will help you examine the tropes associated with villainesses and apply your knowledge to advocating for change in geek media. Our goal and hope is that you will use your knowledge for good and fight for more diversity in the storytelling of villainesses.

Jessica Jones

As we counted down the days to the season two release of Jessica Jones, Super Heroines, Etc. featured a series on the #MeToo movement and pop-culture characters we love.

Our goal is to spark discussions by offering a unique look at stories and characters people might see themselves in and to provide resources and guides for talking about and healing from assault and harassment in its many forms. Each installment of this series highlights characters from across genres and mediums to examine how tropes of sexual harassment and assault are portrayed. The final in the series centers on Jessica Jones.
