Video of the Day: Watch the ‘Women who Kick Ass’ panel from SDCC 2015

Women Who Kick Ass

While the San Diego Comic-Con has, over the years, become the go-to location for many television shows and movies to hold panels and release trailers, the event also has numerous panels focusing on the issues surrounding the film, television, and comics industry at large. The issue of roles for, and representation of, women in film and television is a long-standing one, and to that end, the San Diego Comic-Con began a panel a few years ago titled “Women Who Kick Ass”, which spoke to actresses who portrayed strong and complex characters in movies and television shows about the trials and tribulations they faced, and continue to face, in the industry.

The 2015 incarnation of the festival continued with this panel, with this year’s version consisting of Game of Thrones‘ Gwendoline Christie, Agent Carter‘s Hayley Atwell, Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice‘s Gal Gadot, Doctor Who‘s Jenna Coleman, and Misery‘s Kathy Bates. The panel, which was moderated by Entertainment Weekly writer Sara Vilkomerson, can be seen below.
