Ms. magazine has just turned 40, and their new cover features Wonder Woman, larger than life and arriving just in time to save us all from the War on Women. For the past few days, the editors have been teasing this cover, tweeting hints like: "This woman was born during WW II" and "She has her own Mac cosmetics line!" and "She has been featured on her own television series." Readers made guesses — Azeelia Banks? Beth Ditto? Rosie the Riveter? But no, Wonder Woman is the cover model, as she was for the 35th anniversary issue and the first-ever cover in 1972. She was also on the cover in 1997. But you know what? It really does seem like we need her now, more than ever.

I love me some Wonder Woman, and have ever since I was just a wee Pink. I remember wearing the hell out of my Wonder Woman Underoos—any time I could get away with wearing them as clothing, I did. I don't remember it, but my best friend swears I talked my grandma into letting me wear them to the park! I love the image of me playing in the park as a little kid wearing only my Underoos. :)
