"Wonder Women: The Untold Story of American Superheroines" on PBS
Start Time: 10:00PM End Time: 11:00PM
WONDER WOMEN! THE UNTOLD STORY OF AMERICAN SUPERHEROINES will premiere on PBS’s INDEPENDENT LENS on April 15. The film 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. The film goes behind the scenes with TV stars Lynda Carter (Wonder Woman) and Lindsay Wagner (The Bionic Woman), comic writers and artists, and real-life superheroines such as Gloria Steinem, Kathleen Hanna and others, who offer an enlightening and entertaining counterpoint to the male-dominated superhero genre.
