Wonder Woman, the Amazonian princess who used fought evil and championed truth, becoming a symbol of empowerment for generations of women, is being honored by the United Nations . According to sciencefiction.com, October 21st has been designated as Wonder Woman Day. A special ceremony will be held at the United Nations Headquarters in New York City.
The character of Wonder Woman celebrates her 75th anniversary. There have been many variations to the long standing character. But the Wonder Woman closest to my heart is the version portrayed by the incomparable Lynda Carter in the 1970s. As a child of the 1970s, I eagerly awaited each Wonder Woman episode. My twin sister and I were glued to the television. Lynda Carter epitomized this icon character.
When Wonder Woman ended its network run, I continued to follow both Lynda Carter’s acting and singing careers.
Supergirl (formerly on CBS) begins its second season on The CW. Wonder Woman’s lasso of truth isn’t needed for me to say quite truthfully that I’m thrilled that Lynda Carter has been cast as the president on Supergirl. I look forward to seeing Lynda Carter in this new role.
