5 ‘Wonder Woman’ Amazons On The Power Of Their All-Woman Army

5 ‘Wonder Woman’ Amazons On The Power Of Their All-Woman Army

For many viewers, the recently released box-office hit “Wonder Woman” could have ― and should have ― been set entirely on the women-only Amazon warrior paradise of Themyscira.
