Flashback Friday-70’s TV Girl Power-Wonder Woman (1975-1979)

In the 1970’s television began to reflect the changes in American society. One of these changes was the role of women and how it was thankfully evolving into a true partnership with the male sex.

Entering the world of comics in 1941, Wonder Woman has been part of the cultural lexicon for 70+ years.

In 1975, the comic was turned into an iconic television program starring Lynda Carter as the secret Amazon princess and Lyle Waggoner as Colonel Steve Trevor Jr., the military man who Wonder Woman rescues.

I was not around in 1975, but I can imagine the impact it had on young girls at the time. The 2nd wave of feminism was at it’s peak, Wonder Woman reflected the new woman and the possibilities beyond the roles traditionally assigned to women.

Do I recommend it? Yes.
