YouTube Selection: Are Female Superhero Movies Empowering?

Superheroes are a big thing at the movies, and of late, there have been more and more pushes to show a bit of diversity in that genre as well.  But when it comes to female heroes, are they really empowering and feminist, or is it just a superficial gloss?

The channel The Take opted to look into how feminist those movie characters really are.

To be clear, The Take’s conclusion is not really an either/or.  Instead, they look into what it means to be feminist and then see how well characters like Wonder Woman and Captain Marvel actually measure up.  See below for their conclusions.
