Jazlyn Andrews (Feminist & Gender Studies '17) Published on The Feminist Wire

Today, The Feminist Wire published an article written by Jazlyn Andrews (FGS '17) in its Emerging Feminisms column entitled "'Wrong or Right, Black or White?': The Convergence of Race, Gender, and Justice in Constructions of Catwoman." In "Wrong or Right?," she writes, "Catwoman’s sexuality, portrayals of her as mixed-race, and her villain-vigilante dichotomy, provide a contrasting yet familiar image to Bruce Wayne/Batman that is needed in order to cement him as both a purveyor of justice and an ideal performer of hegemonic white masculinity." 

Andrews wrote the article as part of her Editorial Assistant internship position for The Feminist Wire's Personal Is Political column under the supervision of Professor Heidi R. Lewis this summer.
