Random Bit of Awesomeness: Batgirl Rocks!

Hey everybody, Rick here with the first of this week's Random bits of Awesomenes!  Batgirl hasn't always been the best representative for feminism in the super-hero community. A quick scan of her history in the comics will find her stopping during a melee to fix a run in her tights, participating in a cheesecake-tastic all-nude fight scene, and being the prototype victim for the Women in Refrigerators trend in The Killing Joke. But you, me, and Yvonne Craig have always known there's more to Barbara Gordon than that, and a new video released in support of the Paycheck Fairness Act aims to remind everyone that Batgirl is no one's pushover.

(Thanks Andy for sending me this one!)
