Not even a female icon who portrayed none other than Wonder Woman herself could avoid running into the rampant problems of sexual harassment in Hollywood when she portrayed the character for the 1970s television series. Thankfully, Lynda Carter was able to make sure that Warner Brothers would take action against one of her harassers.
While Carter would not name the person who harassed her, she stated that he was already facing justice and there wasn’t much she could add to the story:
“I can’t add anything to it. I wish I could. But there’s nothing legally I could add to it, because I looked into it. I’m just another face in the crowd. I wish I could, and if I could I would. And I would talk about it. But it ends up being about me, and not about the people who can talk about it. I don’t want it to be about me, it’s not about me. It’s about him being a scumbag. So legally I can’t do anything. If I could I would… It’s not news to us [women], but it is news to you [men]. We’ve been trying to tell you. We’ve been trying to tell you for a long time, and you haven’t listened.”
Carter also noted that a camera operator once drilled a peephole into her dressing room in the hopes that he could see her in the nude. When Warner Brothers was made aware of his actions, they fired him. While it’s unfortunate that there wasn’t a push to oust Hollywood of sexual predators decades ago, it’s at least relieving to know that steps against supporting this behavior are being taken now.

Now that Wonder Woman is officialy getting a sequel, it’s time to start fantasizing about what we’ll see in the character’s next cinematic solo outing and beyond. Wonder Woman has a rich rogues gallery that has transformed and grown alongside her as she’s become one of the world’s most iconic heroes.
Ares, the Greek god of war, was the main villain for Wonder Woman’s first outing, but DC is gonna need to shake things up for future projects. Diana Prince has already proved herself a terrific warrior in Batman v Superman when she took on Doomsday, so I’m excited to see who the creators want to throw at her next. She doesn’t need a full team beside her — Wonder Woman is warrior enough to defend the innocent from all types of threats.
