WONDER WOMAN, COMEY, AND OTHER UNEXPECTED FLASHES OF FEMINISM-THIS MONTH, AGAIN, FEMINISM IS RIGHT WHERE YOU BELONG

I am not a crier.  Except at cheesy Hallmark commercials.  And kids' performances … of any sort.  And weddings.  OK, so maybe I do cry on occasion – but NOT during FIGHT scenes in block buster Hollywood films.  But here I am, about to confess that I am one of the many women[1] who got more than a little misty-eyed watching director Patty Jenkin's awesome movie, Wonder Woman.

In my defense, when I saw the move, I had just come back from a three week, 230+ billable hour work trip overseas, was jet lagged and over tired, and was spending time with my family for the first time in way too long.  And there was some wine involved.  So it's possible I was particularly susceptible to some water works.    

But none of that explains why this not-really-a-crier, strong professional woman nearly hyperventilated when Wonder Woman rejected the latest in a series of well-meaning directives saying "No, you can't," and showed us all that "Hell yes, she can," confidently walking into the no man's land battle zone of war, ferociously and competently completing her task, and blazing a trail for the men to follow.  Making it all the more gratifying was the fact that the heroine is unapologetically a WOMAN, caring deeply about individuals and not just causes, pausing to coo at babies -- and looking damn fine in both her scholarly glasses/tweed suit costume and in her warrior uniform.  And she is strong and determined and does things the way SHE thinks is best.  And she wins, too.
