Pop-culture historian Jennifer K. Stuller regularly sparks conversation as part of our Speakers Bureau with her presentation Ink-Stained Amazons and Cinematic Warriors: Superwomen in Modern Mythology. The feminist author was also featured on KUOW radio’s The Conversation Nov. 20, talking with Jeannie Yandel about female superheroines in popular culture.

KUOW has graciously given us permission to link to that interview:
