Wonder Woman: who she is has morphed many times during her seven decades of existence. Depending on who was in control of her image, and what role the prevailing culture wanted women to play in society at any given time in history, Wonder Woman has been crafted as a superhero and a boutique owner, her muscles and attire symbolic of strength and courage and of bombshell sexiness at various times.
For seven decades, Wonder Woman has formed us and informed our thinking about women’s place in the world. This latest documentary being developed by filmmakers Kristy Guevara-Flanagan & Kelcey Edwards, is called The History of the Universe as Told by Wonder Woman. It’s a project worth supporting–which you can do here.
