Progression for Women
Wonder Woman’s background is fascinating to learn more about, she was a progressive woman hero that started bringing to light feminism ideas. She is a very unique hero that puts aside the typical violent fighting that is done by her male super hero counter parts in order to fight crime and evil in a more complex matter. In the comic where she is helping the women with depression because she is not getting paid enough and either are the other women working in the store that is unique and something that is not addressed in other comics. Wonder Woman also fights against rising milk prices and addresses the issue of lower classes. Furthermore, she also is unique because she was a woman that joined the war effort which was a huge significance because women joining the war at the time made a huge difference to America. Wonder Woman made a huge impact and it allowed for men to think of woman as something more than just a housewife. Although she is seen as beautiful she is not over sexualized and never is dependent on a man to save her, in fact in most of the comics she is the one saving the man. Even Eta Candy and the other females in the novel make a huge impression for females, because Eta Candy is never looked down upon and she is always the first one to be called whenever Wonder Woman needs help. Wonder Woman overall was very forward thinking for women’s equality, and it allowed for both man and women to read a comic that was addressing women’s rights.
