This blog is dedicated to celebrating the legendary love and partnership between Lois Lane, Clark Kent, and his superhero alter ego, Superman, in all of its incarnations.

March is over, which means so is SMALLVILLE WOMEN, BIG HEARTS’s fundraiser. The goal wasn’t reached, but it was a blast celebrating all of the female actors and characters on Smallville. The money raised for the GLOBAL FUND FOR WOMEN will still go to a worthy cause and hopefully Smallville fans will continue to support charitable organizations and strong female characters. 

Ultimately, my hope is thatSmallville fans realize the value in working together. So many of the women on the show made mistakes in their past and it seems fair to demand of ourselves what we demand of them. That means admitting where we’ve fallen short in the past and trying to do better in the future. 

In the spirit of looking to the future, not onlycan we continue supporting the Smallville ladies we love by purchasing Bryan Q. Miller’s SEASON 11 comic coming out April 13th (click here for details), we can also check out some of the projects the actresses are doing in the coming months. June is particularly eventful. Cassidy Freeman’s (Tess Mercer) Longmire will debut on A&E June 3rd, Erica Durance’s (Lois Lane) Saving Hope begins its NBC summer run on June 7th, and Allison Mack (Chloe Sullivan) will begin her recurring role on FX’s Wilfred on June 28th just a week after Erica Durance’s birthday. 

Thanks to all!

Oh, and wish Annette O’Toole a “Happy Birthday” today (April 1st).

The fundraiser supporting the Global Fund for Women in honor of the women of Smallville is ending on March 31st, so please consider donating if you haven’t donated yet. Thank you!


Character Profile - Kara Zor-El/Kent a.k.a Supergirl (Laura Vandervoort)

Stubbornness and selflessness define Kara Zor-El. She sometimes took time to revere and trust the right people, but her heart was always in the right place. Before her home planet, Krypton, was destroyed, Kara defied her father to join her aunt Lara on an adventure to Earth to see where her cousin Kal-El might live if Krypton became uninhabitable and defied him again after he made claims to Lara and her unborn son. Although she loves her family and wants to be with them, Kara’s first allegiance is always to what’s right and to the greater good. So many times Kara’s faced fears of the unknown or chosen a lonely path to protect others. She left Krypton to watch over her cousin. She left Earth to stop Brainiac. She stayed in the Phantom Zone to protect Earth. She said goodbye to Kal-El twice—once on a sliver of hope she’d find what was left of home and again when destiny called her to her future. Kara’s fierce independence and strong heart, therefore, made her into a genuine super girl.

As SMALLVILLE WOMEN, BIG HEARTS continues its celebration of all the women of Smallville, please consider donating to our chosen charity, the GLOBAL FUND FOR WOMEN, on behalf of the self-sacrificing and courageous girls around the world, like Kara, who have lost their homes or sacrifice much to care for strangers as well as loved ones.

Mia Dearden (Speedy), Zatanna Zatarra, Mera, Dinah Lance (Black Canary), Kara Kent (Supergirl), and Courtney Whitmore (Stargirl) are the women of the Justice League. Each has struggled with loss, with moral questions, and with trusting others. And, just like many women around the world in real life, they also had to balance the different roles they play in their lives. In addition to being heroes who risk their lives to use their talents in the fight against evil and corruption, these Justice League women are professionals, students, supportive wives, and dutiful daughters. Some of them resisted joining a team after spending so much time relying on themselves, yet they ultimately decided in each their own time to become a part of a new family.

SMALLVILLE WOMEN, BIG HEARTS continues to celebrate these women during Women’s History Month and asks that you consider donating to the charity, the GLOBAL FUND FOR WOMEN, on the behalf of the women of the Justice League. With one generous donation you can support actual women’s organizations worldwide that, like the Justice League, bring talented women together to be heroes locally, nationally, and internationally.

DONATE HERE. Thank you.

SMALLVILLE WOMEN, BIG HEARTS is raising money for the Global Fund for Women this Women’s History Month in honor of the female characters on Smallville we admire. Please donate today.

The best stories with female characters are those that have the power to inspire us to become heroes in our own lives. One genre that invites women to imagine a world where they, too, can be heroes is the superhero genre. Nonetheless, men have dominated it for much of its history, and today there is still room for improvement in how women are represented in all different forms of media telling superhero stories be it in film, television, or comics. 

To its credit, Smallville exposed its viewers to dozens of original or comics derived female characters who were complex, idealistic, flawed, noble, and determined women of different ages. For characters like Stargirl (Courtney Whitmore), Speedy (Mia Dearden), and Saturn Girl (Imra Ardeen), Smallville was the first time they were seen in live action by millions of viewers.

While former Smallville writer and Batgirl scribe Bryan Q. Miller will be continuing the legacy of these women in fiction by writing them as supporting players in Clark Kent’s post-finale adventures in a new Season 11 comic book out this April, SMALLVILLE WOMEN, BIG HEARTS aims to continue that same legacy with its fundraiser in their honor and in honor of Women’s History Month.

Smallville gave viewers female characters in whom they could see themselves not only as they are, but also as they wanted to be. Please donate on their behalf to the Global Fund for Women.
