Launch Female Superheroes

FSHOn Friday December 6, the platform launched. Female Superheroes tells the inspiring stories of ordinary women. These women become heroes, because they choose to take risks to make life (for themselves and for others) better in the face of oppression.

Cartoon Movement and New Statesman comic artist Tom Humberstone supplied all the artwork for the platform, which has a focus on education. In an interactive environment, high school students are encouraged to put themselves in the shoes of these women, and face the same choices these women have faced. Would they make the same choices?

We're very proud of this project, because it showcases how comics journalism can be combined with a game-like interface, 360 photography and video to create an immersive experience. One of the stories is available in English, the other two only in Dutch at the moment. Click on the image blow to check out the story of Hawa in Sudan:FSH1
