Wonder Women in the War
One of the things I really loved the most about the Wonder Women comics was that she was a women fighting in the war. Both she and her alter ego Diana Prince both play major roles in helping with the war effort. Women during the war like the WAACs for example were questioned when they first started joining the war; people had a hard time accepting women in uniform. Although a lot of the women were only fighting on the home from they still knew what they were doing was important and wanted to show that they could do just as good of a job as the men could. In the Wonder Women sensation comic number 20 Wonder Women joins the WAACS. In of the scenes the women are forced to dig as a punishment; however they finish the hole in 20 minutes proving they are not as weak as they look.
Similarly today there is the debate on whether women should be allowed in combat, and should women train for combat in drill the same way men train for combat. There is the issue of whether or not they should lower the performance standards for women since they are built different, or should they truly be equal and keep the standards the same. It would be interesting to see what approach Wonder Women herself would take on the debate.
Overall, Wonder Women comics brought to light just how important it is for women to be in the military and how their efforts were helping.
