Little Girls Are Better at Designing Superheroes Than You

Biology undergrad student and artist Alexandria Law recently started a project where she gathers photos of little girls wearing superhero costumes and draws their version of the character they’re wearing. She’s started a Tumblr titled “Little Girls Are Better at Designing Superheroes Than You” and it highlights both the costumed girls and Law’s art based on their ideas.

Kids are more impressionable than you, but kids can also be less restricted by cultural gender norms than you. Kids are more creative than you, and they’re better at making superheroes than you.
