You’d think that, after years and years of SDCCs, there would have been at least one woman-moderated panel in the hallowed hall H, right? Wrong. This year was the first.
From the Indiewire article:
Women have moderated panels at the smaller cons before and in the other rooms at Comic-Con, but never at the main show itself. The closest it’s gotten to this before was Jenna Busch moderated a TV panel in Hall H on Sunday. But, usually those panels aren’t the 6,500 behemoths that movie panels are. They actually have removed seats from the hall for reasons I still don’t quite understand. This year, it finally happened with LA Times’ Hero Complex editor Gina McIntyre, who moderated the panel for Terry Gilliam’s The Zero Theorem.
Women dominated San Diego Comic-Con this year in more ways than one. We’ve already reported about how women are leading the conversations when it comes to SDCC social media discussion, and now Indiewire has a great article on how the female presence was felt at the biggest con in the country. Worth noting in particular was the “Women Who Kick Ass” panel, which featured the above lovely badasses (from left to right): Tatiana Maslany, Katee Sackhoff, Maggie Q, Danai Gurira, and Michelle Rodriguez.
