Why Wonder Woman Matters And Is A Must-See!

Last Thursday, my daughter and I could barely contain our excitement as we made our way into a dark theater to watch an advance screening of Wonder Woman. We’ve been looking forward to this since the Amazonian princess made her brief debut in the Batman vs. Superman flick last year, and I must say, Wonder Woman did not disappoint! As a matter of fact, it BLEW ME AWAY. I rarely leave a theater wanting to watch a movie on repeat, but this movie was so damn good – I wouldn’t mind paying the grossly overpriced movie tickets again.

So, what made it so special you say?

This movie has it all. Action, Fun, Romance, Elaborate Costumes – you name it. They killed it. Gal Gadot slayed as a fiery demigoddess who is as compassionate and caring, as she is a fierce warrior. It was refreshing to see a woman on film not be the damsel in distress or the eye candy for once, but rather the heroine of the movie. It’s something we need to see more of, and more importantly, something our daughter’s need to see more of too.

Strong females who can do it all. Who are smart and witty. Who are brave and powerful. Who won’t back down when people tell her something can’t be done. Who deflect hate and anger with love and compassion. THIS is the type of role model our young daughters need to see in today’s society. Last year, I wrote about my feelings seeing Harley Quinn influence so many young and impressionable girls. As a matter of fact, I left the theater feeling dirty and uneasy that my daughter liked her so much. This time was different. I left the theater feeling empowered and proud that Arianna looked up to her. FINALLY, someone got a female lead right. If you haven’t seen it, RUN don’t walk!!! In the meantime, here are some of my favorite Wonder Woman finds that will make you feel like an Amazonian bad-ass.
