We Want Ann Wolfe as Artemis Action Figure
This petition had 607 supporters
It's so rare for girls, specially girls of color, to have heroes in the mainstream media that they can identify with. That is, until Ann Wolfe was cast to be Artemis in the Wonder Woman movie. Ann Wolfe is the embodiment of Artemis, the Amazon hero. "Ann Wolfe ... is considered as one of the best fighter and the hardest puncher in the history of women’s boxing by many. She held world titles simultaneously in four different weight divisions." (http://sporteology.com/top-10-female-boxers-time/
"She has been through the wringer in life: incarceration, homelessness as a young mother in Austin, a violent marriage to a drug dealer in her teens, illiteracy and the heartbreak of losing both parents at the age of 18... “I remember the day my mama died,” she said. “I told my brother that the whole world would know me one day. I would have never been Artemis had I not been Ann Wolfe first.” (http://www.mystatesman.com/sports/wonder-wolfe-austin-boxing-legend-makes-acting-debut-film-epic/qKDc4OxuAy5aCZRaJidxfN/
