Where Are the Female Werewolves in Television and Movies?

Yes, Halloween is over, but though we spent the month talking about our favorite female witches and vampires, there’s one supernatural bad girl that still doesn’t get a lot of love and attention, and that’s female werewolves.

Though there are gems like Ginger Snaps and Trick r Treat, there is also a lot of sexism when female werewolves are onscreen.
