GoddessLife Woman of the Week Wednesdays - Wonder Woman

It's GoddessLife Woman of the Week Wednesday! Here at GoddessLife HQ, we feature a woman who embodies the highest possible expression of her nature. Honoring the brilliance in other women will help all of us on our path to living our own true potential.

OK, let’s just come out and say it: Wonder Woman is the most famous heroine of all time. No offense to the Lara Crofts, Buffys, or Disney princesses of the world, but none of them have been plastered on as many magazine covers, adorned as many T-shirts, or sold the countless comics, dolls, and action figures that Wonder Woman has. The full package of beauty, brains, and brawn, she’s been a feminist icon since her star-spangled intro in 1941(can you believe it was that long ago?)

Wonder Woman is Princess Diana of the immortal Amazons from Greek mythology. When army pilot Steve Trevor crashes on the warriors’ secluded island paradise, Diana wins the right to escort him home and make her people known to the world. Entering our cynical world for the first time, there’s a lot she must wrap her head around, especially our ways of war, hate, and, well… dating. Helping her are her superhuman strength and speed, as well as the trademark bulletproof bracelets, but it’s probably her Golden Lasso of Truth most people really wish they had.

Torn between a mission to promote peace and her own warrior upbringing, Wonder Woman fights evil while hoping to unlock the potential of a humanity she doesn’t always understand. 

What do you love most about Wonder Woman?

Ahhh wonder woman...
i was lucky and fortunate to be a kid when wonder Woman was still in. i was only three when i would jump around pretending to be her... (That and one of Charlie's Angels) . I really believe that growing up watching Wonder Woman effected my views on women's strengths ...

* PS: Linda Carter is the ONLY wonder Woman.. SO, Hollywood stay away from even remotely trying to create what you might call reboot....

She is magnificent. I have a picture of her hanging where I can see her everyday. She is there to remind me to act first with love, to be firm and ferocious when necessary, that there is strength within us that we have only to discover and then our true potential is unlocked. I will never forget how the creator of Wonder Woman said, " Wonder Woman was created to be the archetype for a NEW kind of woman." We are that New woman. And she is my role model!

she has a natural beauty. Too bad she couldn't be her true latina self at the time. I think her last name is Carbojal.
