"Arms akimbo, Wonder Woman stands with one well-greaved leg in the ancient world and one in ours. The imminent release of the first full-length, live-action Wonder Woman film is an occasion for classical reception work that joins dynamic efforts already underway on the classics and comics and the classics and modern fantasy. The decades of interpretive enthusiasm Wonder Woman has inspired, however, make it difficult to put a new spin on things.

"So we stake our claim in the old: the story and history of Wonder Woman are suggestive of the ancient (yet enduring) habit of talking about influence, obedience, and persuasion through a gender-based idiom of power. Furthermore, the “persuasion dimension” of Wonder Woman continues to gain depth in popular and political culture, though it is not always recognized."

"When Bill O'Reilly insulted Rep. Maxine Water's hair and White House press secretary Sean Spicer told reporter April Ryan to "stop shaking your head," the comments by the two white men hit a nerve.

"Black women — who often face a one-two punch of racism and sexism in their daily lives — immediately took to social media using the hashtag #BlackWomenAtWork to air out their grievances, including those about other women.

" 'The things that black women need to push for are quite different than what we think of as the mainstream feminist movement,' said Sheri Parks, a professor of American studies at the University of Maryland and author of Fierce Angels: The Strong Black Woman in American Life and Culture."
