This is her call to adventure when she realizes that Steve Trevor will die without her help. After she rescues him, she learns that Steve is spying on the Germans in order to gain information on their weapons which would be valuable to the Allies. Following Steve’s explanation of his involvement in the war, Diana is eager to play a part in ending it. Diana believes that Ares, the god of war, is responsible for all the fighting. However, her refusal of the call exists because her mother understands the dangers that Diana will be exposed to if she goes.
However, to attain gender equality, men’s problems of inequality should also be changed as protectors of women from death. In the past, this made sense as men were physically stronger while women were a reproductive force, but with the advance of technology and civilization, men’s muscles and physical advantages became useless because these traits do not make them any more immune to bullets and bombs than women. In consequence of the not-so-recent rise of empowered women in the Western world, the media depicts women as protagonists and grants them more importance in society, as seen in the TV drama The Walking Dead through Negan’s comment “I don’t enjoy killing women. Men? I can waste them all the livelong.” Gender equality must be practiced as it is immoral to have biases based on one’s gender, but it should not be done by increasing women’s rights, as feminists argue – it should be done by lessening the inequality between both

While the remaining members of the Justice Society leave to fight in the war, Wonder Woman is left behind, as “a wistful look enters [her] eyes” (Fox D), wishing she could join them in battle. She stays behind, no longer actively participating or exerting power, but faithfully fulfilling her duty as secretary. While the Wonder Woman that Marston had created “was a Progressive Era feminist, charged with fighting evil, intolerance, destruction, injustice, suffering, and even sorrow, on behalf of democracy,
In movies, women are almost always changing themselves to please men. Men, just as in advertising, are also much more likely to be an attorney, an executive or have a higher education than women. The representation of gender in movies shapes imaginations and stereotypes and they teach young girls and boys about the way society sees them: the ‘roles’ they should fulfill, their worth, the way they should
Wonder Woman recently made her first solo cinematic appearance, which reintroduced the world to who she is and what she represents. Both the film and comic book left an impact on American society of old and new which allows it to remain relevant to this day. Although this book was subject to controversy and criticism, the message being sent relates to modern readers because the issues that it addresses are still present today. Prior to the release of Sensational Comics, Issue #1, sexism appeared to be at its epitome. During the 1940s, women were greatly oppressed and told what to do and how to do it.

Dorothy’s character contradicts the common representation of females in novels. Baum’s narration of Dorothy conflicts with the stereotype of women needing a man in order to survive. Instead of a ‘knight in shining armor’ archetype rescuing a ‘damsel in distress’, Dorothy appears to save the male characters. She further demonstrates her strength and confidence “when Dorothy, fearing Toto would be killed, and heedless of danger, rushed forward and slapped the Lion upon his nose as hard as she could,” (Baum 43). She has control over an animal that is considered to be the ‘king of the jungle’ and protects her companions.

The prince proved himself again with the defeat of Grendel’s mom, asked once more to achieve what no other man could. In his final battle, the now king defeated a dragon that every other soldier was too scared to fight; he won a battle no one wanted to assist in except for one other man who was as courageous and heroic as Beowulf. Beowulf is an epic hero because he achieved what no one dared to for the sake of
