Sculpture, Alpha Female, by

Apha Female.JPG

Donna Dodson’s ALPHA FEMALE Inspired by her Great Aunt is digitized and animated in the software program Maya by Trina Baker. The acting is incorporated by the pop culture feminine icon Wonder Woman, in the television series acted by Lynda Carter in the 1970’s and with Gal Gadot’s performance in Wonder Woman 1984, 2020. Wonder Woman was selected because she "fights for Freedom, equality and Justice for all".  The textured background is filled with words, inspired by Melchor Hall's poetry and descriptions of Wonder Woman from pop-culture graphic novels and movies, in addition to descriptive attributes of Athena, the tattoo on Alpha Female’s leg.  Alpha female is a modern Amazonian Woman Warrior without needing to be a sex symbol.  She embodies the Suffragettes that fought for the right to vote,  women who attended college at the turn of the century, women who fought for the right to contraception and the right to be at the head of the table as Leaders, CEOs, and Presidents.
