Disney princesses, who?
I’m a total sucker for superhero movies. Basically anything outrageous, action packed, and totally different from normal life. With the Wonder Woman movie releasing today, I thought it would be fun to take a look at some of the reasons why Wonder Woman is such an icon.
1.) She’s raised by a group of badass ladies.
Who cares if your dad is a god when you’re raised by the coolest warrior chicks EVER.
2.) She’s bisexual.
Wonder Woman’s backstory features many positive relationships with men and women. Representation is important people.
3.) She combines fashion and fighting.
Her bracelets are indestructible and even her tiara is a weapon.
4.) She is no damsel in distress.
For a 1940’s comic, this is a big deal.
5.) Her Lasso of Truth.
Just imagine how much easier life would be if you had one of these.
6.) Diana leaves Paradise Island (Themyscira) to fight in a war because she has a duty to the WHOLE world.
7.) She’s beautiful, but she’s also smart and strong, and you don’t forget it.
8.) She’s been a feminist icon for YEARS.
9.) Her character is not limited to being a love interest or bait.
You’ll catch this girl where all the action is.
10.) Her powers are from training and lots of hard work.
