MIT Women’s and Gender Studies Program and Student Activities Office present a REG DAY film screening: “WONDER WOMEN! The Untold Story of American Superheroines”at 7PM in 6-120. 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. WONDER WOMEN! goes behind the scenes with Lynda Carter, Lindsay Wagner, 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. Discussion with WGS Professor A. Walsh to follow. Photo by Cory Doctorow.
