Wonder Women: The Untold Story of American Superheroines

Dedicate to all the Superwomen, past and present, the World Over who influenced and shaped my life.

Today on Far Future Horizons we are proud to present as our feature documentary Wonder Women - The Untold Story of American Superheroines.

This feature documentary explores the concept of heroic women from the birth of the superhero in the 1940s to the TV and big screen action blockbusters of today.

Heroic role models are important in childhood development, yet there is a dearth of these for young girls. Wonder Woman provides a rare example of a female heroine who doesn't require rescue, determines her own missions, and possesses uniquely feminine values.

Featuring such guest speakers as Gloria Steinem, actors Lynda Carter and Lindsey Wagner, and a colorful cast of scholars, writers, and fans, the film challenges pop culture's gender biases by looking at how Wonder Woman's storyline changed over time while considering how women are rarely depicted as heroic, powerful, or world-changing.
