We love Wonder Woman and she represents a lot for us. When we wrote this song back in 2013, the Wonder Woman movie wasn’t yet on the books. We were seeing lots of the same type of hero on the silver screen, being rebooted over and over again while women were ignored and left to minimal, narrow, flat roles in this ‘geek powerhouse’ genre.
Now that the Wonder Woman movie is coming out, we wanted to celebrate! To us, having a woman director on a woman-led Wonder Woman movie is a small but incredible step towards embracing heroes and representation of all kinds. There isn’t just one way that a hero looks, or a hero acts, or a hero shows strength.
In this video, we asked the Internet to show us all of the different ways that “strength” manifests. It’s not just physical power—it’s perseverance, it’s ingenuity, it’s science, it’s music… it’s so much. We really love how this video turned out!
