Wonder Woman TV actress Lynda Carter was honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Tuesday, April 3, as her superhero character enjoys a big-screen revival. And this has become possible only with her poised for action.
The 66-year-old Miss World America 1972 was introduced by CBS Corp Chief Executive Leslie Moonves and the director of last year's hit movie Wonder Woman Patty Jenkins.
Before the unveiling of the emblematic terrazzo and brass star, Lynda told the audience along Hollywood Boulevard in L.A.,

She further exclaimed,
I have loved it all!

Lunda's character in Wonder Woman - first appeared on the pages of DC Comics in 1941 and debuted as a television series in 1976 - looked as a prototype to the empowered heroines who have been taking center stage in Hollywood.
46-year-old Petty said that Lynda has inspired her as a girl and taught her to live without being rebellious or feminine, or attractive or strong.
Her Wonder Woman made me believe I could have whatever I wanted, and even more importantly, it made me unashamed to want it,
Wonder Woman was only on U.S. TV for three seasons, first airing on ABC and later on CBS where it finished in 1979. The series along with Lynda's performance, have given the superhero series a long legacy as a feminist symbol.
