The Junior League of Reading presents: Wonder Women: The Untold Story of American SuperHeroines

Event Description

Presented by the Junior League of Reading

Tracing the fascinating origins, evolution and legacy of Wonder Woman, this lively documentary takes you from the birth of the comic book superheroine in the 1940s to the blockbusters of today. A look behind the scenes with Lynda Carter (TV’s Wonder Woman), Lindsay Wagner (The Bionic Woman), comic book writers and artists, and reallife superheroines such as Gloria Steinem, Kathleen Hanna and others, this film offers an enlightening and entertaining counterpoint to the male-dominated superhero genre.

A panel discussion will follow the film screening!

Tickets can be purchased through the Junior League Website.
