Reminder: ‘Wonder Women!’ airs tonight on PBS


As we noted in February, PBS will air Wonder Women! The Untold Story of American Superheroines tonight as part of its Independent Lens series.

Funded through Kickstarter, the documentary by director Kristy Guevara-Flanagan traces the evolution and legacy of Wonder Woman, from her introduction in 1941 to her role as a feminist icon in the 1970s to her depictions today, and examines how “popular representations of powerful women often reflect society’s anxieties about women’s liberation.” Among those interviewed for the film are Gloria Steinem, Lynda Carter, Lindsay Wagner, Trina Robbins, George Perez, Gail Simone, Danny Fingeroth and Andy Mangels. An interview with Kristy Guevara-Flanagan about “Wonder Women” can be found on CBR.

Wonder Women! premieres tonight at 10 ET/PT on PBS (check your local listings).



Apparently this episode will not air until May 14th in Houston
