I don't think it is plagiarism to repeat myself, right? Here is what I said over at io9 when I first saw this posted.
So I watched the TV Wonder Woman pilot. Kind of funny but also sweet.. One of the things that was clear is that Linda Carter and the writer's didn't just see her as a man with a skirt. At 16;16 Cloris Leachman, her mother, talks about the evil of male ways., women treated as slave,s but also a hint of something else that men brought to the table.
Here is a link to the show. Want to get nostalgic? Listen to the opening song and note the lyrics.
But the whole thing about a race of Warrior women who are also smart? Fair? And don't believe in hurting people? That would be refreshing. Especially instead of, "Let's beat the bad people up." world that male superheroes writers have created.
What Linda Carter said in a comment about the character was interesting. Her quote:
I've often tried not to say that, but I think it's the truth. It's
like, 'Hellooooo guys, get a female that understands what that's all
about.' You look at any society that suppresses women, and it's
violent. Look around the world. … There's a humanity that they're
missing. There's got to be a sweetness, a kindness, a goodness in the
character. The rest takes care of itself."
