Wonder Woman Contest...

I grew up watching Lynda Carter as Wonder Woman.  My sisters took turns playing her, roping each other (and me) with the Lasso of Truth, and floating dolls with fishing line to recreate the invisible jet.  Cardboard tubes painted gold became the Bracelets of Submission.  Sometimes our mom even joined in on the game!  I grew up watching a strong female character empower girls to be heroes and save the day instead of needing to be saved.  I didn't know it then, but early on it instilled in me a sense of gender equality.  Women could be strong and powerful.  Women could be courageous and bold.  Later, when I started to learn about feminism, I found that those concepts already lived in me.  Our childhood games, inspired by a TV show, prepared us.

Over the decades, I've been surprised that there weren't real efforts to reboot the series or portray Wonder Woman on the big screen.  It seemed like there was always a Batman or Superman movie coming out, but it was curious how Wonder Woman's character never seemed to be revived.  That's why I got very excited when I heard that they were working on a movie about her!
