Chris Wood, who plays Mon-El on Supergirl tweeted, “Supergirl, at its core, is about women. Strong, brilliant, capable, compassionate women who fight for what is right and stand up against injustice. It is a shame that the stories we tell and the words we say don’t seem to be resonating with everyone behind the scenes.”

He adds, “I’m tired of seeing men taking advantage of an aged and tired concept of alpha-elitism. Without the public shaming of this behavior–this industry-wide standard of stubborn and often angry sexism–those perpetuating the problem can continue to behave like cavemen.”
