Yes; the DC writers really should get out more and - perhaps - even meet some real women, observe how they look, dress, act, speak. I seriously doubt that the interaction will prove much of a treat for the women involved - but good may come of it in the end. One can only hope.

Ironic, isn't it, that they can't even get such things right in a fantasy world which isn't very much like Earth at all? It ought to be really easy - especially with a huge canon of widely-accepted characterizations to draw on.....

This new review of Ongoing #2 (and there are not a lot of them out there) makes the selfsame point about the treatment of women in MotU by DC.

In addition to the bios there are also four mini-comics, which came with some of the Classics action figures. Those are part of the same canon as the bios.
