Lynda Carter, who plays the Amazonian hero knew that she had to work her sexuality in order to make the show as successful as possible. When she heard that critics were speaking negatively about the character, her looks, and what it meant for culture she shot back at her detractors:

Superman has got a big pouch in his crotch…it’s the ultimate sexism to say because she [Wonder Woman] has big breasts and a costume on, that is what you think represents her and who she is.
