Today it is International Women’s Day – a day to celebrate the social, economic, cultural and political achievement of women.

Geekdom is filled with strong women, and even though there aren’t nearly as many as there could be, we are now starting to see better representation of women on the big and small screen. So, today celebrate all the strong heroines – whether they’re like some of these characters below – or they’re real-life women making great strives forward.

Oh, and speaking of strong and inspiring women, you may also like to know that Wonder Woman 2 will begin shooting shortly. According to Comic Book.com, the Wonder Woman sequel will start production in May.

Hurrah!

And if that wasn’t enough, the second season of Jessica Jones is now available to stream on Netflix. There are 13 episodes in total and they are all sat waiting for you to watch them.
