As children, little girls watched Wonder Woman on TV and were inspired to become confident, independent, and strong - just like her. Nowadays, being ‘Wonder Woman’ has evolved into a modernized and achievable image of a strong, independent woman who can accomplish anything she desires.

He happily obliged me:
