‘Wonder Woman’ Day Live-Stream!

Today Wonder Woman will be designated Honorary Ambassador for the Empowerment of Women and Girls by the United Nations! And DC Comics along with the UN’s Global Goals for Sustainable Development campaign have launched official websites promoting the event. The news broke almost a month ago in a Closer Weekly interview with TV’s Wonder Woman, Lynda Carter – who said, “To honor Wonder Woman and women all over the world is just amazing.”

Since then, Carter and big screen Wonder Woman, Gal Gadot have confirmed their attendance via social media. UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and DC Entertainment President Diane Nelson will also be there. And yesterday, Patty Jenkins, director of the Wonder Woman feature film (hitting cinemas next summer!) was announced. The ceremony starts today at 12PM ET / 9AM PT at the United Nations headquarters in New York City.

But you don’t have to be a dignitary to watch the designation – the UN is live-streaming the ceremony! Q&A sessions with Carter, Gadot, and Jenkins via Facebook Live and Twitter will follow the event. Here’s the schedule card (text links at the bottom of the page):
