goodwill ambassador

After just two months in office, the United Nations decided that they had to strip Wonder Woman of her diplomatic credentials as a role-model for feminist empowerment, petitioners deciding that the super-hero was rather the antithesis, embodying the expectations of the established patriarchy.
Not only was the costume of the non-canonical goddess considered insensitive to much of the world that she represented with many present seeing her appointment as frivolous, more the objectification of women was so prominent in US headlines and politics to champion women’s rights with such an image seemed inappropriate. While I am very glad to learn that the UN has a memory for yesterday’s news, I do hope our heroine finds another engagement soon.
