To support women everywhere and celebrate International Women’s Day (IWD), Warner Bros. Consumer Products and DC have announced new offerings and experiences dedicated to the comic book women of DC.  

Featuring Wonder Woman at the helm, DC’s roster of powerful women also includes Batgirl, Catwoman and more. New products and experiences featuring the women of DC include apparel, themed experiences, comics and more. 

Launching ahead of IWD, Australian activewear label Active Truth has released a Wonder Woman-inspired activewear collection. The 18-piece, size-inclusive collection launched globally on March 1. 

In comics, DC presents the first “Wonder Woman” crossover of its kind in decades, by the writers behind “Wonder Woman,” “Nubia & the Amazons” and “Wonder Girl.” 

The Wonder Woman comic event, Trial of the Amazons, kicks off with “Trial of the Amazons Issue #1” from writers Becky Cloonan, Michael Conrad, Vita Ayala, Stephanie Williams and Joëlle Jones writing and drawing, with artists Elena Casagrande, Laura Braga and Skylar Partridge, and “Nubia and the Amazons #6” with “Nubia and the Amazons” issues to follow from the same creatives. 

Participating comic shops will also be celebrating the event with three promotional temporary tattoos, each representing a different Amazonian tribe. The first temporary tattoo, representing the Themyscirans, will arrive alongside “Trial of the Amazons #1,” the opening chapter of the explosive story. The second, representing the Bana-Mighdall, will arrive alongside “Nubia & the Amazons #6,” the second installment of the seven-part crossover. The third, representing the Esquecida, will arrive alongside “Wonder Woman #785” on March 15, part three of “Trial of the Amazons.” 

Unique Vintage has partnered with Warner Bros. Consumer Products and DC for a collection of vintage-inspired pieces celebrating the Women of DC. Released in tandem with International Women’s Day, the line features strong colors and prints in timeless silhouettes. Product offerings include graphic tees, printed dresses and superhero swimwear, available in sizes XS-5X. The Unique Vintage collection launches on March 8 online. 

Warner Bros. World Abu Dhabi is introducing a new DC Superhero Batgirl who will be making her first appearance at the theme park on International Women’s Day. Joining Batman’s crusade on March 8, Batgirl will be fighting crime with The Dark Knight in Gotham City, just in time for the ladies-only event, “Women of Warner.”
