More than a comic book character, Wonder Woman is a cultural icon that 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.
Created in the 1940s by eccentric psychologist and inventor William Moulton Marsten (who had a proclivity for putting his creation in tight situations), Wonder Woman quickly became an equal in the male-dominated superhero world, and was an immediate hit with women who were entering the wartime workforce. While her character went through many frustrating changes over the decades, she was adopted by the Women's Movement and graced the cover of the first issue of Ms., paving the way for Lynda Carter's embodiment of the character on 1970s television.
Director Kristy Guevara-Flanagan's energetic documentary is an enlightening chronicle of the impact of Wonder Woman. In interviews with admirers as diverse as Gloria Steinem, fourth grade fan Katie Pineda, and the women behind Seattle's own Reel Grrls and GeekGirlCon, each share their personal tales of how the Warrior Princess of the Amazon inspired them to become real-life superheroines.
