Why Graphic Novels for Girls?

The reviews on this site focus on graphic novels that encourage girls to be compassionate, intelligent, clever, and brave. There are many books out there that already do that, but graphic novels have traditionally reached a male audience. However, there is a growing realization that graphic novels can also appeal to girls, and so there are an increasing number of graphic novels that girls may find appealing. Some of them are simple and silly and follow the same stereotypes we are so used to seeing in the media and in other traditional girl-focused media (like Disney movies). But some are truly positive. They feature fierce, strong women who stand up for themselves and their friends and who are therefore great role models for young girls. I hope you will enjoy these books – please let me know if you have any questions, comments, or feedback!
