WONDER WOMEN! The Untold Story of American Superheroines explores our nation’s long-term love affair with comic book superheroes and raises questions about the possibilities and contradictions of heroines within the genre. Reflecting our culture’s deep-seated ambivalence toward powerful women — even in this so-called post-feminist era — women may be portrayed as good, or brave, or even featured as “action babes,” but rarely are they seen as heroes at the center of their own journey. The film features candid interviews with Gloria Steinem, Lynda Carter, Lindsay Wagner, moms, teachers and girls.
