March is Women's History Month. And while here on SYFY FANGRRLS we celebrate women's achievements throughout the year, we're going above and beyond for the upcoming month with a limited podcast series called Forgotten Women of Genre.

You've definitely heard of Kevin Feige and maybe Louis D'Esposito, but did you know there's a third partner in the MCU triumvirate? And her name is Victoria Alonso. Alonso has been a part of Marvel Studios since its inception and started her work on 2008's Iron Man. She's an openly gay woman who grew up in Argentina, and she is one of the most powerful people in show business with over twenty blockbuster films under her belt. On today's Forgotten Women of Genre, we're sharing the story of kick*ss producer, and woman of Marvel, Victoria Alonso.

Science fiction, fantasy, and all associated genres have finally evolved from a niche interest into a mainstream staple. But the women who have been instrumental in creating and shaping the nerdverse have largely gone unrecognized. Until today. Forgotten Women of Genre tells the stories of the women who helped some of the most famous fantasy worlds become a reality.

New episodes of this series will be released each day in the month of March, in addition to regularly scheduled episodes of STRONG FEMALE CHARACTERS.
