Is Wonder Woman an appropriate role model for girls?
Yes, we need to present girls (and young people in general) female role models whose desirability isn't one of their main features—but Wonder Woman is sacred. Unlike Batgirl or Supergirl, she's not derived from a male character. She's an Amazon from an all-female society, and like Beyoncé, she owns her power!
The outfit Lynda Carter wore in the TV version of Wonder Woman is burned onto many of our brains, but here are the illustrations for the 2016 UN campaign. They're true to the original but also super badass. Why change what isn't broken?
