Say no to 'Wonder woman' as the UN ambassador for women

Say no to 'Wonder woman' as the UN ambassador for women

I want the UN to choose a REAL woman for their ambassador for women and children not a FICTICIOUS character. One who can encourage girls to be all they can be .

Why is this important?

HOW can the UN think an imaginary , scantily clad , very well endowed ( Barbie doll - statistics) comic book cartoon represents women of the world and 'empowers' them? She is a 'sex symbol ' and will only serve to promote women as sex objects in countries that already veer that way!

Are they serious?

Yes I get that they need a 'modern ' symbol - but 'Wonder Woman' was out of the 70's (or maybe it is more to do with a new 'Wonder Woman 'film being released in 2017 )???

But would you choose Charlie 's Angels? or Baywatch babes ? what about Bridget Jones ? Or a whole raft of similar females
?

Pretty much every REAL woman I have ever met is a better role model for women, for encouraging our girls to be all they can be.

Are there no real modern women across the whole world who could not be the UN's ambassador for women ? really ?

We deserve better


Reasons for signing

  • As a fellow Human, I find this deeply unsettling. :| I confess that sometimes I am embarrassed with the direction this world is going towards, and this is one of those times! We DO NOT need a fictional character to champion the rights for our fellow women! I mean, why should we? We already have masses of truly exceptional and righteous women throughout our wonderful world. Ditch the fake stuff and open your eyes UN!
  • Wonder woman is an unrealistic and fictional character that shouldn't be anyone's role model, not because her character is rubbish but because to be exactly like her or want to be, is impossible. SHE ISN'T REAL! As real people we should look up to real role models.
  • I honestly had to do a double take ,I thought this was some sort of a joke! It's the 21st century,wake up UN !! On behalf of all women ,we're insulted.
