This International Women’s Day (3/8/2021), Pop Culture Classroom is highlighting the role of comics, video games, movies, and other pop culture in empowering women and girls and promoting gender equality — and you can help!

At Pop Culture Classroom, we believe strongly in the power of pop culture to educate, inspire, and connect. As educators, fans, and creators, our staff is dedicated to lifting up a more inclusive, empowering notion of the hero for the future.
