A LA BRAVA, the Graphic Novel (#6 in the A La Brava Series)
The A LA BRAVA team is finally together! Jalisco. Santa. Loquita. Ruca. And Bandita.
The superheroes are brought together by Muneca, an eager agent wanting to prove herself and her new-found grassroots organization. When the controversial Fair Share Bill, a bill to tax the billionaires, gets presented to Congress, females in political powers mysteriously start dying. The media labels it as freak accidental deaths but Muneca has her suspicions as to who’s behind it all. So she bands the superheroes together and has them stake out the possible suspects, billionaires.
After a failed assassination attempt on President Hilda Ruth Sotomayor, the superheroes put aside their differences and work together to figure out which billionaire is causing political unrest and the murders.
Gender as it functions today is a grave injustice. There are 41 female CEOs in the Fortune 500 (8.2%). There are 120 women serving in the U.S. House of Representatives (23.5%). Though both facts are “ground-breaking” and “historic wins” for women, 8.2% and 23.5% is no where near equal. Which proves the higher you go, the fewer women there are.
We’ve evolved but our ideas of gender have not. Feminism is used as an insult. Though believing in equality of sexes (the definition of feminism) is moralistic. One day it will be a different world, a fairer world; where a woman’s success isn’t a threat to a man.
