1) Because it's a fun superhero movie

2) Because by supporting it, Hollywood will hopefully make more female led & female directed movies.

3) Because as a father (or parent in general), it's our duty to instill a sense of self-confidence and self-esteem in our children. Of course, Wonder Woman will help our daughters in that respect. But it will also help our sons since it shows it's ok for men to be in a supportive role with respect towards women, and not always being the leader. Something I think that is significantly lacking in modern broadcast media & will serve them well as adults.

And Captain Kirk steals an Eindecker. Don't forget that.

So we should depend on Hollywood to teach our daughters self-respect?

I think we should teach our daughters self respect and self worth. Unfortunately that needs some support as advertisements, television and the movies show a conflicting message to what we teach. I think that is the thing to take away from the original post.

My daughter already has a sense of self-confidence and self-esteem which both her mother and I hopefully had some influence upon. Movies certainly didn't do it.

Unfortunately, I can't spend father's day with her as she is learning to scuba dive on the coral reefs around Bali right now.

4) It's a good movie, period.

I took my wife to WW a week or so ago.

My daughter just completed her first year as an electrical engineer for a major aerospace company, conducting advanced research in counter-drone technologies. She took herself. And we (all) Skyped about how good it was afterwards.

Each of my daughter's has self-esteem by the bucketsful.

Each is accused of being 'overbearing' and 'too

Each is a success in her chosen field of endeavor and
each is happily married. One is a happy Mom, one has
chosen, so far, to be childless.

Neither needed any sort of media to develop into the
strong successful women they've become.

I don't allow my daughters to watch bunk like that.

They better be making me some supper or be making more babies with their boyfriends. After all, those welfare checks won't cash themselves.

And I told them that if they aren't happy about the arrangements, I would help them to move out with their boyfriends down under the highway overpass. And they ain't taking my favorite sofa with them neither. That's staying right in the driveway under the shade tree just where I like it.

My daughter just walked for graduation wearing a gold medal for scholastic achievement. She did well enough in high school to get a free ride in college to pursue a degree in Actuarial Science.

She's working two jobs this summer to get the laptop she wants to use at school this fall.

Nothing against Gal Gadot, but I already have one wonder woman in my life. And she not only makes her father proud but sometimes makes his head spin trying to keep up with her.
