Awesome Tote Bags for Girls from DC Comics!
I came across these really cool tote bags for girls this weekend at Wal-Mart! Forgive the fuzzy photos, they were taken with my camera phone.
The picture below came out especially bad. It’s a shame because it was a cool looking design.
You should be able to find these at your local Wal-Mart. Girl Power!

I like these bags, but can’t help but think the amount of pink and the slogans like “Girls rule” actually undercut any message of female empowerment they, and the heroes they depict, might be sending. Maybe I am thinking about it too much, but these women are iconic enough and “dolling them up” with any amount of pink frills seems somehow demeaning… as if to say, “Aw, isn’t it cute, the girls want to play superhero, too?” You’d never see backpacks of Superman or Batman with blue piping and slogans like “Man Power.” So these seem like one more instance of sexism in pop culture in general (and at DC Comics in particular), albeit masked as something empowering.
Yeah, that top one is as good as purchased!
