Wonder Women! The Untold Story of American Superheroines with director in person


More than a comic book character, Wonder Woman is a cultural icon who ignited the creation of a generation of strong female characters—the Bionic Woman, Sarah Connor, Buffy the Vampire Slayer—and who remains a role model for young women all over the world.
Wonder Women! The Untold Story of American Superheroines traces the fascinating evolution and legacy of the one-and-only Wonder Woman. From the birth of the comic book superheroine in the 1940s to the blockbusters of today, Wonder Women! looks at how popular representations of powerful women often reflect society’s anxieties about women’s liberation. Wonder Women goes behind the scenes with TV’s Wonder Woman Lynda Carter, Bionic Woman Lindsay Wagner, comic writers and artists, and real life superheroines such as Gloria Steinem, Shelby Knox and others who offer an enlightening and entertaining counterpoint to the male dominated superhero genre.
