Her role as Batgirl established Craig as the pioneer of female superheroes on television. She was also an advocate for women's health issues and equal pay for women - a cause this blogger also supports.

Craig is survived by her second husband, Kenneth Aldrich, and her sister, Meridel Carson.  

RIP Yvonne Craig. (May 16, 1937 - August 17, 2015)
Thank You For All The Memories.
