We’ve basically been waiting forever for a comic book featuring Gloria Steinem as its superhero. Well, Female Force: Gloria Steinem is finally here. Female Force is a comic book series that has already starred important women in politics and art, like Hillary Clinton, Tina Fey, and Adele. It seeks to portray Steinem’s undeniable influence in women’s civil rights, the Huffington Post reports.

“Our goal is to show the behind-the scenes machinations — many of them ignored by the mainstream media — that resulted in Gloria Steinem becoming a leading voice in emerging women’s rights movement,” Davis said in a press release. “A visual medium provides perspective that is not only accessible but more relatable to the average person without losing any of the information involved.”

The 32-page comic book was written by Melissa Seymour and drawn by Angel Bernuy and it will be read by all of us.
