Did you know Lynda Carter, the awesomely cool lady who played the title character in the 1970s comic-book-come-to-life television show Wonder Woman, is also a talented singer? Carter, 57, is bringing the ol’ pipes (and maybe the golden lasso?) to town November 7 for an engagement at the the National Museum of Women in the Arts where Carter will receive a lifetime achievement award for doing stuff like this:
Carter didn’t just play a feminist hero, she walks the talk. Just a few months ago, Carter gave an interviewer her thoughts on Sarah Palin:
“Don’t get me started. She’s the anti-Wonder Woman. She’s judgmental and dictatorial, telling people how they’ve got to live their lives. And a superior religious self-righteousness … that’s just not what Wonder Woman is about. Hillary Clinton is a lot more like Wonder Woman than Mrs. Palin. She did it all, didn’t she?”
You said it, WW. Congratulations on a lifetime of achievement – and for being the inspiration for little girls all over the world to seek justice and kick ass.
