Wonder Women! The Untold Story of American Superheroines on PBS

I love a good documentary, but none more than Wonder Women! The Untold Story of American Superheroines. Last year, Erika and I had the distinct pleasure of viewing this film (and reviewing it), and it moved me beyond words. It says so many of the things I want to say here at this blog about women and comics. For this fangirl, it’s an intelligent, poignant and supremely validating look at the female superheroine and her role in shaping the American woman. It is a must see film for ALL comic book fans. Beyond comic fandom, it will enlighten the friends and families of comic lovers of the power of comics in culture.

WONDER WOMEN! THE UNTOLD STORY OF AMERICAN SUPERHEROINES will have its television broadcast premiere in the United States on PBS’s Independent Lens series on Monday, April 15, 2013. Check your local listings to confirm the time and date.

  1. I am so looking forward to this documentary!! I will be watching PBS tonight. : )
    And I would also go so far to say that the female super-heroine goes beyond influencing American women, as a British/Canadian woman Wonder Woman has played a big part in my life.
    This is an international thing! : )
