It's International Women’s Day tomorrow, and if we’re talking about someone who represents feminism, women’s rights, gender equality and reproductive rights, there’s no fictional character used to represent this as frequently on International Women’s Day than Wonder Woman.

A character born from polyamory, first-wave feminism and also linked to the very first birth control clinic in the United States; Wonder Woman was the only one of DC's top tier heroes to not have her own solo headline movie, after Superman in 1978 and Batman in 1989, and their numerous sequels. With the MCU blazing a trail for the superhero cinematic renaissance, the race to get the first female headlining superhero movie of the 2010s was on.

It was a race that DC won, rather wonderfully. That doesn't mean it was quick, easy or free from studio mandated scenes...

I would love to hear your thoughts on Wonder Woman !
