Wonder Woman: Classic Beats New

My amazing mom educated me early on the evils of sexism and frowned upon TV shows in which she felt women were objectifed. “Wonder Woman” was one of these shows. I liked to see a girl superhero in action and thought the gold lasso and red boots were cool, but I can see her point about the costume being impractical. NBC revealed the look of the new “Wonder Woman” today and this doesn’t look like progress or an improvement. Boobs still popping out and ribs still too constrained by the corset (come on, girl’s gotta move to fight evil and there’s no time to worry about popping out). And blue boots? With latex leggings? What happened to the stars? I’d like to see her spin and change into something better.
