“Diana Price”, better known as Wonder Woman, flew into existence in 1941 by creator William Moulton Marsten. An Amazonian princess originating from an island of women who lived apart from men for centuries, she landed in the U.S. to battle injustice and gender inequality. Her civilian disguise, a secretary named Diana Price, was made for the purpose of working in the U.S. military intelligence. Sculpted from clay by her mother Queen Hippolyta and given life by Greek goddess Aphrodite, she exists for and by the empowerment of women. An intelligent, strong, and beautiful superhero, Wonder Woman offers young girls and boys a role model for peace, justice and women’s rights.
