Storyline

Feature documentary exploring 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 are a dearth of these for 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 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.

Great Female Superheroes on Film Documentary
6 December 2017 | by bettycjungSee all my reviews

12/6/17. A great documentary about female heroines on film. And, there have been quite a few. This documentary was made before the current Wonder Woman featuring Gal Gadot who really takes female superheroes into the stratosphere. Nevertheless, this is a great doc for cinema buffs who may not have watched this particular genre, and probably should.
