By 1976 Lynda Carter was on the wall of every teenage boy’s bedroom thanks to her starring role in Wonder Woman. Even though she started out as a pageant queen and a singer, Carter easily slipped into the role as the Amazonian princess with a knack for fighting crime. While discussing the character’s clothing choice in the ‘70s Carter explained that there was more than meets the eye. She told the New York Times:

I never really thought of Wonder Woman as a super-racy character. She wasn’t out there being predatory. She was saying: ‘You have a problem with a strong woman? I am who I am, get over it.’ I never played her as mousy. I played her being for women, not against men. For fair play and fair pay.
