Wonder Women! The Untold Story of American Superheroines traces the fascinating birth, evolution and legacy of Wonder Woman and introduces audiences to a dynamic group of fictional and real-life superheroines fighting for positive role models for girls, both on screen and off.


 


In an era overflowing with male-centric super heroes, where have all their counterparts, superheroines, gone? Wonder Women! The Untold Story of American Superheroines traces the fascinating history and legacy of Wonder Woman, from the birth of Wonder Woman in comic book in the 1940s to the female hero recreated in blockbusters today. In addition to the Wonder Woman character, the film also deals with various images of female warriors in the media, and connects them with the images of various women and superheroines of the real world today, including Gloria STEINEM and Kathleen HANNA.
This documentary tracks the changes in the female superhero genre in line with the changes of the times, from the beginning of the genre during the World War II era to the return to conservatism in the 1950s and 1960s, and from the waves of feminism in the 1970s to the post-feminism of the present day. Through this, the film analyzes the contentious relationship between the popular representation of powerful, independent women and society. [HONG So-in]
