Paw Patrol: Girl Cartoon but with Fewer Girls

Paw Patrol is great because it rejects toxic masculinity and takes on a format traditionally used in Girl Cartoons. Every single problem in Paw Patrol is solved through teamwork and resourcefulness. But Paw Patrol has some work to do. Although the content is modeled on Girl Cartoons, its underrepresentation of girls and women eschews the feminist potential of the genre.
