Every Day Wonder Woman

Every Day Wonder Woman

I was asked recently to talk about the power of the feminine. In this era of Wonder Woman and Captain Marvel, I figured that should be easy. Finally the world is recognizing that women can do it all, right? Hold the child with one arm while saving the world with the...
