Beautiful women in any culture often become objects of desire, and no less has been said of Lynda Carter. This magnificent actress retains a certain iconic symbolism in American Culture that started back in Wonder Woman and stayed with her ever since. Some other women who fit the boot from the 1970s included Cheryl Tiegs, Jacqueline Bisset, Farrah Fawcett and Pam Grier. While most actresses never truly aim to be classified as sex objects, many have become them regardless. The most persistent quality of Mrs. Carter in Wonder Woman was the ability to draw in critics and fans alike to adore or at least favor the character “Diana.”
Wonder Woman as Sex Object
Before Wonder Woman, Lynda felt the pressures of beauty on her first television appearance “Lew King’s Talent Show” at age 5. She joined the group “Just Us,” during high school and then later at 17 with her two cousins created the band “The Relatives.” Gary Burgoff or Corporal Walter Eugene “Radar” O’Reilly drummed for the band. 1972 was a different peach, where Carter entered an Arizona beauty contest and won. She won the Miss World USA, won, attended the International 1972 Miss World pageant, and made it to the semi-finals. She turned to acting classes in New York and appeared in a police dram Nakia in 1974, the episode “Roots of Anger.”
Lynda Carter Remains Iconic as Wonder Woman
. She won the role as Wonder Woman with her performance. The show lasted a mere three seasons and set her up to record an album called “portrait.” Mrs. Carter told US magazine in response to feedback on her posters, “I never meant to be a sexual object for anyone but my husband. I never thought a picture of my body would be tacked up in men’s bathrooms. I hate men looking at me and thinking what they think. In addition, I know what they think. They write and tell me.” Carter commented on the Late Show with Joan Rivers in 1987 “I think that you’re probably familiar with a problem in Hollywood, and that is that they market you, and they use you. They did a mask of my face and put it on the doll, and they put my name on for the first run of it. Then they took my name off and said they did not have to pay me anymore. Therefore, it’s the kind of thing that you can be used so much in this industry. I make nothing. I don’t even make anything from the reruns. Do not ever settle for net profits. It’s called creative accounting.” Today she remains as the Iconic Wonder Woman, even though she has produced albums and starred in other works.
