I got some terrific gifts this year, but one of the coolest gifts came from my good friend Nicole-- Be The Wonder Woman You Can Be, Diane von Furstenberg's limited edition book inspired by the ever-fabulous Wonder Woman, published by DC Comics (cover image from www.dvf.com). In addition to The Adventures of Diva, Viva & Fifa, an inspirational comic book written by Diane herself, the book includes Wonder Woman cover art through the ages, and a collection of previously published pieces on Wonder Woman by feminist icon Gloria Steinem, writer Les Daniels, and a letter from the television face of Wonder Woman, Lynda Carter.
As someone who once-upon-a-time owned her very own set of Wonder Woman underoos, this book reaches me on several levels, speaking to the girl I once was in addition to the woman I strive to be. And in a time of uncertainty, the message of empowerment, courage and optimism is exactly what we all need. So go out and get your own copy, and get inspired. And by the way, Diane von Furstenberg, a Wonder Woman in her own right, donates all proceeds from this book to Vital Voices, an organization dedicated to empowering and supporting women in developing countries.
