Wonder Woman Named UN Girls’ Empowerment Ambassador

in Latest/Slider

THE DC Comics superhero will be inducted as an honorary ambassador for the empowerment of women and girls by the United Nations at her 75th birthday party in New York on October 21 at the organisation’s headquarters.

Wonder Woman was created in 1971 by William Moulton Marston, whose character comes from the all-female fictional paradise of Themyscira in the Amazon. Though she was initially written to test the reaction of fans to a female superhero in the DC comics universe, her popularity grew quickly and she got her own story line just one year later.

Actress Lynda Carter donned her familiar red and blue bodysuit and armour in the 1970s hit TV series ‘Wonder Woman’ and Gal Gadot debuted her version of the sword-wielding warrior in ‘Batman V Superman’ earlier this year, with a standalone movie due to be released next year.
