Happy birthday, Lynda Carter!
Today is the 70th birthday of actor, singer, performer, and icon Lynda Carter.
She's got a new album out in a few days and her Wonder Woman episodes are streaming on HBOmax - so go get on it! (And just last week, TCM aired her Mark Lester directed movie Bobbie Jo and the Outlaw).
So, make it a Carter-tastic day! Go listen to one of her records or watch a WW episode!

Today is the birthday of Patron Saint to The Signal Watch, Ms. Lynda Carter. She's busy performing again this year, and set to reprise her role as POTUS on CW's Supergirl. If we're lucky, she'll also be in WW84.
Here's to Ms. Carter on another great year.

Here's to Lynda Carter, who is celebrating her b-day today.
Lately it seems Ms. Carter has been particularly busy, between appearing on the CW's Supergirl as the President of the United States, to performing live (she's a well-regarded singer), to talk show appearances, to her appearance at the UN and in partnership with the Wonder Woman film. And last year she lent her voice to a lounge performer in Fallout 4.
We're always happy to see Ms. Carter get her due. And, of course, we hope she has a great birthday.

Yesterday was, apparently, the official 75th birthday of Wonder Woman. As part of that event, Wonder Woman was made a Special Ambassador of the United Nations, an icon for new efforts within the UN to speak on behalf of gender equality.
I don't know how much of Wonder Woman's origins most people know, or how hung up they are on some of the more salacious details of creator William Moulton Marston's personal life, or how that played out on the comics page. But I do know that Marston was sincere in his interest to create a strong female superhero, not just with whom little girls could identify, but for little boys to understand that women could do all the things that men can do. They can leap into the fray and they stand as equals (although I'd argue Marston may have had a bit more of an ideal of a matriarchy in mind even more than than just an egalitarian ideal).

We're big fans of Ms. Carter here at League HQ, and we hope she's twirling herself into a fantastic birthday.
In addition to still appearing on TV and in movies, of late, Lynda Carter has been lending her voice to a series of video games called The Elder Scrolls and has been singing in various venues across the country.
