If Wonder Woman proved anything this weekend is that, besides being a good superhero film, it also served as important representation for young girls around the world. Long overdue for a female-led superhero film, people flocked to the theaters to see the movie and many posted their pictures on Twitter. Wonder Woman is an important example as to how impactful a film may be. Below is a collection of pictures of young girls who dressed up as Wonder Woman to see the film (including Viola Davis’ daughter).
You can see the rest over at Twitter in their moments section, because that’s how much attention it garnered.

Before she was Wonder Woman, she was Diana, princess of the Amazons, trained to be an unconquerable warrior. Raised on a sheltered island paradise, when an American pilot crashes on their shores and tells of a massive conflict raging in the outside world, Diana leaves her home, convinced she can stop the threat. Fighting alongside man in a war to end all wars, Diana will discover her full powers… and her true destiny.
Directed by Patty Jenkins, Wonder Woman stars Gal Gadot, Chris Pine, Connie Nielsen, Robin Wright, David Thewlis, Danny Huston, Elena Anaya, Ewen Bremner and Saïd Taghmaoui.
The film is currently playing in theaters.
