Wonder Women! The Untold Story of American Superheroines traces the fascinating evolution and legacy of 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.
Watch and chat live with the filmmakers, comic experts, everyday superheroines, and fans of Wonder Woman. Director Kristy Guevara-Flanagan and Producer Kelcey Edwards will be in conversation with a dynamic group of comic insiders, including Zoe Chevat, comic artist and contributor to The Mary Sue, Jewels Smith, author of (H)afrocentric, Grace Gipson, researcher on race/gender in film and comic books, and Mike Madrid, author of The Supergirls: Fashion, Feminism, Fantasy, and the History of Comic Book Heroines.
