Gail Simone to Address United Nations


The debate is over: Gail Simone is the most powerful woman in comics, and the United Nations seems to agree.

The veteran scribe and seminal Batgirl and Birds of Prey writer announced today that she has been invited to speak to the United Nations.


The announcement comes just weeks after the UN stripped Wonder Woman of her honorary ambassadorship. Simone, of course, has a long history with the character and the seeming connection has not gone unnoticed by fans.
Simone did not immediately clarify the nature of what she will speak on to the United Nations, but her prominent place among female writers is sure to be a major reason why she received the invitation.

The invitation came online from actress Chase Masterson, who invited Simone to speak on a panel during the Commission on the Status of Women.

What do you think Simone will say to the assembly? Sound off in the comments!
