Should I Take My Kids To See Wonder Woman?
Rarely do I make a point of going to see a movie on the first weekend it is out, but I made an exception for Wonder Woman. There were a lot of reasons for this. It was my birthday weekend, so I had childcare that enabled me to go with my spouse. As a geek-of-all-trades and a ardent feminist, I really want to see well done movies with women in lead roles who are not objectified every five minutes do spectacularly well right out of the box. And as a child of the 70s and 80s, Wonder Woman was really my first hero – from the Lynda Carter live action series to the Justice League cartoons on Saturday mornings, my Wonder Woman Underoos got quite the work out. I remember wondering why Superman got his own movies and Wonder Woman didn’t. In many ways, I’ve been waiting for this movie my entire pop-culture conscious life.
