Photos of Little Girls Clad as Wonder Woman Illustrate Why Representation Matters!


When Wonder Woman hit theatres in early June, voices cried out from all directions.

Most were enormously positive. Finally, a female superhero! A female kicks ass, takes names, and does it all without the help of a man. She’s strong. She’s courageous. She’s headlining her own big budget summer blockbuster. More than that, a female directed it! Hallelujah! Progress!


Some voices, though, mostly those of brittle men, couldn’t handle the fact that a movie could be for females and not for them. When the Alamo Drafthouse in Austin, Texas organized a women-only screening of Wonder Women (because can’t we have something?), the backlash was swift and crazy.
