Oprah found a way to honor director Patty Jenkins’ highly anticipated film, Wonder Woman, by throwing a release party, at her home, for a couple dozen kids. Reading of the impact this film is having on young girls does my heart good. The power the arts have on societies, globally, will continue to give hope. And strong female role models will continue to liberate the masses. 

Where do you find inspiration in times of discord? Wherever you can!

Oprah Celebrates Wonder Woman Day

General audiences and famous faces alike continue to fall in love with Patty Jenkins’ Wonder Woman, the unquestionable hit of the summer so far. One of those famous faces includes talk show titan Oprah Winfrey, who threw a party at her home for a group of kids to celebrate the release of the film.

Throughout her long career, Oprah’s name became synonymous with selfless giveaways for a good cause. Her decision to throw a Wonder Woman-themed party for 28 10-year-old kids comes from celebrating the empowerment of women in the film, a sentiment that has been mirrored throughout the film industry.

Wonder Woman star Gal Gadot adored Winfrey’s kind gesture for the kids, posting a video on her Twitter account of Oprah putting the finishing touches on a cake modeled after the Amazing Amazonian warrior. Take a look below:

Oprah’s party speaks to the widespread impact that the film has had throughout popular culture, specifically to how the movie speaks to children. The importance of a superhero film starring a woman directed by a woman has not been lost on general audiences, and the positive influence is already being felt throughout everyday life.

Not only did her film, Wonder Woman, hold on to the top spot at the US box office for the second week in a row, but she also learned of the impact the film is having on younger viewers. Jenkins broke the record for the highest opening weekend gross for a female director last week and although we bet she was thrilled about that, we reckon it’s stories like these that are the real reward for her hard work in bringing the film to the big screen.

Jenkins took to Twitter to share a note she’d received that was written by a kindergarten teacher. The teacher noted just some of the best Wonder Woman related incidents that happened in her class within a week of the film being released.

The list of observations includes seven girls banding together during recess ‘not to fight but to defeat evil’, and a little boy upgrading his Iron Man lunchbox for a Wonder Woman one.

They also include a girl changing her Beauty and the Beast-themed party to Wonder Woman three days prior, and another girl shading a little boy for littering before declaring “that is why there are no men in Themyscira”.

Oh, and another claiming “Wonder Woman was way better than Frozen“.

Wonder Woman appears to be having a profound effect on the kids who are going to see the film, giving them a new idol to root for and play as during recess. This note is especially powerful in how it details the reactions of little girls, finally with a major superhero to root for on screen. In a superhero landscape dominated by men, it certainly can only be positive to have more representation across the board.
