"You obviously have little regard for womanhood. You must learn respect." -Wonder Woman.
Wonder Woman is a woman who combines intellect, beauty and great physical skills. Although she could deflect bullets off of her bracelets and drive an invisible plan, Wonder Woman was best known for being a compassionate leader.
Being the first female superhero to superhero to hit the television screen, Wonder Woman was an influential role-model for young girls. They wanted to be her. She was strong, independent and not married.
In the late 1960’s, Gloria Steinem, in the middle of the Woman’s Liberation Movement, did a revisionist text on the Wonder Woman comic book. Within this, she included a long essay about the importance of Wonder Woman to girls growing up in the 1940’s, 50’s and 60’s.
Wonder Woman is one of my favourite feminist icons due to the fact that she was ‘wise, beautiful, brave and explicitly out to change a world torn by the hatreds and wars of men.’(Gloria Steinem).
"Any civilisation that does not recognise the female, is doomed to destruction". -Wonder Woman.
