March is here, which means we're celebrating Women's History Month here on Team FANGRRLS. Our loving homage to herstory will take many forms over the next few weeks, but our biggest endeavor will be our podcast project, Forgotten Women of History. 31 days, 31 amazing women who helped to share the world of genre fiction as we know it but get none of the credit for doing so. Make sure you're subscribed to our flagship podcast, Strong Female Characters, to catch every episode. You won't want to miss these incredible stories.

For now, let's check out the top ten most-read posts on SYFY FANGRRLS from the past seven days!

We stan a legend in pink who co-ordinates his fashion with his awesome wife and makes sure he has a scrunchie on hand for hair emergencies.

The Freeform series Siren offers a new take on mermaids that couldn't be further from Ariel and The Little Mermaid, but its central pansexual romance is also pretty ground-breaking, as noted by Afiya Augustine.

 - The Batman should take a cue from MCU's Spider-Man when it comes to trauma and grief

The deaths of Thomas and Martha Wayne represent one of the most well-known moments in all of comic book history, but every Batman movie has repeated the traumatic flashback to the point where it's almost meaningless. So, for consideration for future DC movies, SE Fleenor offers their idea on how to shake things up.

 - Sense8 shows that sex is as much about your brain as your body

Netflix's Sense8 offered one of TV's most striking and passionate depictions of sex, relationships, and how they bind us together, but so much of what made that show so fascinating (and so hot) was in how it emphasized the mental and emotional sides of sex. SE Fleenor goes deep on the series.

 - The best of the 2019 Oscars red carpet

The Oscars are done for another year and regardless of what you think of the winners (boo Green Book), there were some undeniable Looks on the red carpet. So much pink!
