Wonder Women, the world’s greatest comic book heroine, provides a launch pad for this vibrant examination of superheroines on and off the screen.
- 27 December 2012 - 13 January 2013
- ACMI Federation Square Melbourne
Wonder Women! The Untold Story of American Superheroines wraps graphic novel styling, rock aesthetic and four decades of sexual politics into a mighty smart package.
If you’ve ever picked up a comic book, tuned into Buffy or are just a hopeless fool for pop culture then this one’s for you!
Wonder Woman, an Amazonian warrior princess, came from a mythical land of women to fight injustice, tackling Nazis and super-villains. In post-war America, however, DC Comics forced her into relative domesticity until she was saved by the second wave of feminism and in particular Gloria Steinem, who emblazoned her on the inaugural edition of Ms Magazine.
Bustling with articulate women of all ages, Kristy Guevara-Flanagan’s feature is a rapid-fire examination of female heroes in pop culture since the conception of our lasso-wielding heroine in 1941. Featuring Riot Grrrl, Kathleen Hanna (Le Tigre), Lindsay Wagner (The Bionic Woman), Lynda Carter (Wonder Woman), authors, commentators and a slew of fans.
Wonder Women! The Untold Story of American Superheroines isn’t just another chick-flick.
