Having said that, I am glad that a super hero movie about a woman has been so well received and critically acclaimed. However, I also want girls and teens to know that they don’t have to follow in a man’s shadow to accomplish anything. Since I write about American history, I’ve read plenty about Women’s Suffrage and how much has been accomplished for women’s rights. But it seems that the “helpless woman” myth lay hidden beneath Wonder Woman’s heroics. I love to see stories where men and women work side by side to accomplish great things. I hope the writers of the Wonder Woman sequel get that.
If you would like to hear the point of view of the show’s writers and a little history of how the screen story was developed, check out the following article: http://collider.com/wonder-woman-script-changes-writers-charles-roven/#patty-jenkins.
