A long time a go, in comic books, and books, and movies the hero of a story was a dude, usually with a flowing cape and tights. The females in the story were always the damsels in distress, the ones only there to look pretty, scream, and be saved by the hero. Now we have heroines, able to save themselves and sometimes the guys. Girls in the stories can be more than a pretty face, this is the Rise of the Heroines!
