WNBA Launches What Excatly Makes A Hero” To Empower & Inspire Girls

Top Women like Captain Marvel and our WNBA players define and inspire our own version of super hero in their everyday lives through their strength, speed and power. Whether that’s through basketball or striving to be the best they can be in the community, our players are inspiring examples of everyday heroes.

Sports Female Empowerment Is On The Rise

“Women like Captain Marvel and our WNBA players define and inspire our own version of super hero in their everyday lives through their strength, speed and power,” said WNBA COO Christy Hedgpet. “Whether that’s through basketball or striving to be the best they can be in the community, our players are inspiring examples of everyday heroes.”

The WNBA’s season officially starts on May/24/2019, and you’re going to want to see them in action. Meanwhile, Captain Marvel is coming to theaters on March 8  aka International Women’s Day so you can finally see the superhero herself take care of business on the big screen.

Female empowerment has seen a rise in the world of sports lately, and it’s seriously about time. Even the most recent Super Bowl’s ads were geared more towards females than they have in recent years , putting an emphasis on women’s voices. Nike has recently made headlines with the release of the Pro Hijab, the company’s first ever hjiab for female athletes. Which female Muslim sports pros have lauded and described as a huge step toward inclusion in the sports world. The women of the U.S. gymnastics team made history in their vocal denouncement  against sexual assault. Seeing these  events deserved recognition in athletics and in the world at large is something that should remind you of just how incredible, strong, and powerful women really are.

Understanding that you have what it takes to do and also keep on supporting women who are making change in this world

Though the WNBA season doesn’t tip-off until May, the league has now partnered with Marvel Studios for co-opted marketing opportunities. The first combined television spot dropped tonight, featuring some of the WNBA’s top players intertwined with footage from Captain Marvel.



Larson revealed she enjoys playing Danvers role  so much because she finds that character are very relatable and personable, despite being one of the most powered individuals in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

“I think who she is is just so dynamic and unique, because she is really strong and steadfast and knows who she is, but she also is emotional and feels terrible when she makes a mistake and is deeply flawed, and says the wrong thing,” Larson reflected. “And those were really the things that I was excited about because just playing a superhero that was some like idealized version of perfection just didn’t feel right to me. I like the fact that she doesn’t always do the right thing, and when she doesn’t do the right thing she goes out of her way to make sure that she can fix the mistake.”


The WNBA And The NBA Both Dropped The Ball To Highlight Women’s Accomplishments In The Sport

An NBA All-Star year in which Marvel Studios collaborated with the WNBA to drop a stunning Captain Marvel ad during halftime of the All-Star Game presented a prime opportunity for broadcasters to highlight the on-court accomplishments of WNBA players. But they came up far short by snubbing coverage of Allie Quigley: winner of the WNBA All-Star Three Point Contest in two consecutive years (2017, 2018) and setter of a new record for the contest.With a score of 29 last July, Quigley has the highest score in WNBA or NBA history.

When the WNBPA calls on society to “bet on women,” it means, listen to women and include women in coverage where they rightfully belong. Anything else is default-to-male status quo that erodes social progress  decision by decision, erasing women from their rightful places in history.

  1. Greetings from WA’s Give and Take thread.
    The post was interesting. The preponderance of links was distracting. Most of the links I clicked on lead nowhere. The pop-up that appears straight-away in the lower left of the screen never loads. Neither does the (in?) link at the bottom of the page.
    I guess my thoughts are “less links are better, and make sure they work.”

    The subject itself was engaging, an intersting read.

    My website is in it’s infancy. I only have one post to date, but you are welcome to check it out and comment. I know my social media links don’t work yet. It’s a work in progress.

    1. Thanks for reading the article . good luck in your journey and have a great day calbert333

    It’s pretty awesome to see such strides being taken toward women’s empowerment! Marvel partnering with the WNBA will hopefully bring more attention to this sport, and women’s athletics in general.

    1. Thanks you for reading my article Anthony . Agreed WNBA needs as much exposure as possible for it to be a self sustaining brand in the long run

    I’m always a fan of strong female characters. I wonder why sci-fi and fantasy have always been the forerunners in using strong female characters. Just think about Ripley in Alien and Sarah Connor in Terminator. Maybe it needed fiction in the past to portray women as believable strong role models. What ever the reason, I’m glad we have come a long way and women’s empowerment has seen a rise in both movies and sports. I’m into strength sports myself and women’s Olympic weightlifting is actually way more interesting to follow these days than men’s because they are really pushing the world records every season.

      Thank you for visiting my site Jukka .I have never thought about that way when it comes lead characters in sci fi flicks .But it seems there is a pattern in using women in these roles and portraying them in a strong light. Have a great day
