Girls have superheroes, too

Cath Elliott has a rebuttal to the UK report that focuses on ‘boy’ play.

Superheroes with special powers aren’t the sole preserve of boys and men, and they haven’t been since Batman first came face to face with Catwoman. It might be an idea if the denizens of the DCSF got themselves up to speed with popular culture before pronouncing on children’s fantasy play, if only to save our daughters from being excluded from all the fun when the nursery teachers ring the bell for “Spiderman time”.
