Even though she isn’t real, we find ourselves looking to Wonder Woman a lot lately. She’s a pretty amazing role model, fighting for what’s right with love and grace. So we think everyone could stand to be a bit more like Diana Prince.

Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins echoes, as she thinks Wonder Woman is the superhero we all need right now.

At a recent press event, Jenkins said the entire cast and crew was very aware of our troubling political climate while making the film.

Jenkins and actress Gal Gadot, who plays Wonder Woman, talked a lot during filming about what it means to be a hero.

Now that the film is out, Jenkins is glad we all have a role model in Wonder Woman to look up to.

That’s precisely why we love Wonder Woman so much.

She’s a strong warrior, but she doesn’t use her abilities for evil — a lesson that’s so, so important right now.

She certainly can. And we’re so grateful for it.
