See Jane Salon – Women of Action: Redefining the Super-Hero

Hosted by The District by Hannah An
June 8, 2015

Women have become the new creative power force behind Hollywood’s latest wave of superhero films. In a field that until recently was heavily male dominated and the names of its most popular characters usually ended in “man” – Superman, Spider-Man, Batman – now is creating more opportunities for women. This panel will feature leading storytellers, producers and entertainment business leaders who will share their stories and insights about their experiences in the genre. While significant work still needs to be done, there is enormous pool of talent that the industry is now finally beginning to utilize.
