My wonder woman graphic t-shirt from the brand Junk food has slowly moved into prized possession territory. My introduction to the world of Wonder Woman was from watching reruns of the 1970s TV show during my childhood.
The best things about the show that stuck to my memory were the opening theme sequence and the fact she could kick ass in her iconic red, blue and gold costume. So imagine my surprise, when I ran into this graphic t-shirt at Saks Outlet in downtown Minneapolis about 10 years ago, surrounded by AC/DC, Blondie and Beatles T-shirts. I was excited because I hadn’t seen the TV show in years. I had never seen a female superhero memoralized on a t-shirt before besides I loved the colors on the Wonder Woman graphic t-shirt. I quickly realized that I had come across a rarity. You may have noticed a theme here be now, things from my past keep me inspired. Usually, my favorite way to wear was generally under blazers, like I previously mentioned it’s my favorite t-shirt and I kind of stopped wearing it so it was nice to finally find a new way to wear it thats a bit different from what I am used to. In this case with my Stella Jean pencil skirt(last worn here)
Female superheroes continue to be a rarity on the silver screen. In our culture in general, there is not a lot of positive affirmation that encourage femininity and strength. Although there may not be enough female superheroes to look up to, there are plenty women super heroes to look up to in real life. I have been quite lucky to surrounded by women who are superwomen in real life, I mean women that have worked numerous hours in a week to support their families. Who is your favorite superhero?
