At first, she was a powerful alternative to other WWII-era superheroes. By the 60s, she had morphed into an eyelash-batting shopaholic. How was Wonder Woman born and then reborn into a strong, independent, iconic female figure?
Wonder Women! The Untold Story of American Superheroines tells us all this and more, documenting the 67-year career of Wonder Woman and her transformation from comic book character to feminist icon. The documentary examines the mainstream media industry that creates and perpetuates images of women and also takes a critical look at our evolving values about women as agents of strength, authority, and leadership.
