The new movie, "Wonder Woman," is going to be a big summer hit. It has two things that interest me. The power of a woman and her interaction with guys. It might be a great movie for Middle Schooler girls. We tell these girls that they have power and can use it to make the world a better place for love, kindness, compassion and peace. These same girls are at that age when they are coming to discover boys in adolescent stages of intimacy. How do I dress? What do I say? So, at the same time that girls are learning their own inner power, they are learning about their coming of age with guys. Wonder Woman lives in a land of all women. Then a guy literally drops in and lets her know that the world is a mess. It goes on from there. Now I will be at a monastery where I am supposed to be getting holy. Seeing Wonder Woman would not be a good fit. It will be my summer penance. I could use some power too.
