The struggle for rights, autonomy, and certain freedoms has been waged throughout human existence, and the gift of activism has been handed down from one generation to the next.

Girl Vigilantes and Super Heros

   Girl Vigilantes remind us of super hero’s fighting anonymously, under the cover of night, often disguised shrouded in mystery provoking thoughts of superhuman powers. Shrinking violet, aka, "Atom Girl, Virus, Leviathan, and Veye,” is a fictional character, a superhero and Legion of Super-Heroes member in the DC Universe's 30th and 31st centuries. She comes from the planet Imsk. She was created by writer Jerry Siegle, the co-creator of Superman, and artist, Jim Mooney for DC Comics in May 1961. She has the power to shrink to tiny to giant size, as do all Imsk natives. Activists are often fighting against near impossible odds. Popular Music and Culture Collection, M2012-06_003_001
