DC’s “Wonder Woman” movie, starring the incredible Gal Gadot, received a considerable amount of press, and women-only showings sold out across the United States—but this shouldn’t come as a surprise. After all, it’s 2017, and viewers everywhere are ready for female superheroes to steal the spotlight. While we’ve come a long way and the box office records prove it, we’re here to point out that GenderInequality.Sucks and to shout-out some real life, hard working and inspiring “wonder women” who are making a difference across the globe.

A victim of such violence herself, Dukureh works to spread awareness and protect women and girls from an atrocious act that often subjects them to long-term complications and is a violation of their human rights.

Mhairi Black is the youngest British MP in the Commons since the 17th century. Black was only 20 years old at the time of her election as the new MP for Paisley and Renfrewshire South. She has used her platform to push for greater diversity in Westminster, highlight the national food bank crisis, and call attention to LGBTQ+ issues. If you agree with her positions and think Discrimination.Sucks then a .SUCKS domain is a great way to connect with other like-minded individuals online.

Oncologists Drs. Esserman and Hwang have been instrumental in groundbreaking research that offers breast cancer patients less invasive options to treatment. They are combating the “overtreatment” of breast cancer that often leads doctors and patients to rush into a mastectomy or lumpectomy when other options may be available to them. BreastCancer.Sucks but so does unnecessary, invasive surgery, so work like theirs is vital.

Are YOU the Next Wonder Woman?

Wonder Woman is more than just a graphic novel heroine and a blockbuster movie hit. She represents strength, feminism, determination, standing up for what is right and overcoming adversity. What women do you think are deserving of the Wonder Woman moniker?

If there’s a problem in the world that inspires you to take action, a .SUCKS domain is a great way to get started. Use it as an online hub to start a conversation and attract people who feel similarly. Spark a debate, create change and inspire others to do the same. Because let’s face it, our world needs more than one Wonder Woman to save the day!
