"The Strong Female Character" sounds positive, but it's actually a term used by critics to describe the token girl let into the boys' club of action-adventure movies. She often has little character development or backstory, and ends up being a love interest or a damsel. But this summer's crop of blockbusters sparked a spirited debate around a group of heroines, and whether we need to rethink this whole problem. With Lindsay Ellis, Carolyn Cox of The Mary Sue, and Jan Combopiano of Catalyst.
