It might take some getting used to but the United Nations has named comic book character, Wonder Woman its Honorary Ambassador for the Empowerment of Woman and Girls.
The announcement on October 21, 2016, coincided with the character’s 75th birthday as the U.N disclosed in a statement;
‘On 21 October 2016, the character of Wonder Woman will be designated as Honorary Ambassador for the Empowerment of Women and Girls, in support of Sustainable Development Goal 5 – to achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls.
The Wonder Woman campaign will highlight what we can collectively achieve if women and girls are empowered – along with examples of women and girls who have made and are making a difference every day by overcoming barriers and beating the odds to reach their goals.
The campaign is about women and girls everywhere, who are wonder women in their own right, and the men and boys who support their struggle for gender equality, bringing about positive change in their homes, workplace, communities, countries and the world together.’
