Steve Trevor is a Feminist

In the movie Wonder Woman (2009) directed by Lauren Montgomery, the audience is presented with the princess of the Amazons and embodiment of American pop culture feminism, Diana, Queen Hippolyta’s daughter in the DC comic. She is depicted as being made of sand by her mother, and brought to life by the gods, particularly Hera, of the ancient Greek pantheon. After Steve Trevor, a womanizing Air Force pilot who crash lands on Diana’s homeland of Themyscira, the Amazon queen holds an Olympic like contest to identify the Amazon most fit to escort Trevor to his homeland, the USA. Hippolyta forbids Diana from participating, fearful that Diana will succumb to Trevor’s masculine charms and face ruin, as Hippolyta once did when the god of war, Ares, betrayed her. After winning the competition, the Diana and the rest of the Amazons learn that Ares escaped his bonds with the help of Persephone, a traitor to her people, when she kills Alexa, her partner in guarding Ares that day, and is wreaking havoc upon the world. Artemis, the fiercest Amazon besides Diana, still blames Alexa for “allowing” herself to be murdered, stabbed in the back by her sister, ACME WRITERSPersephone. With Trevor by her side, Diana, now Wonder Woman, eventually dispatches Ares, saving the world from his unquenchable wrath and unholy influence. Since Trevor is depicted as a womanizing “dog,” yet with Diana trusting him, the audience, and you, the writer, is faced with a question: is Steve Trevor, Wonder Woman’s sidekick and love interest, actually a feminist? If so, how? If not, why? Be sure to pick three key scenes to argue your main claim, such as the scene in the alley; the hospital scene, and another of your choice; say, the end scene when she prepares to battle her arch-enemy, Cheetah, and rebut a counter-argument for each claim.
