It's the personal stories that really got to me.

It's definitely worth checking out.

...a great consciousness-raising tool (how 1970s is that?) and a fun celebration for fans of Wonder Woman and her sisters in spandex.

Should prove irresistible to comic-book fans and pop-culture mavens, even if it is misleadingly selective as it argues that young girls mostly lack strong women role models in popular entertainment.

November 6, 2015 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

Between the captivating clips and the enlightened talking heads, this is one nonfiction feature that, were it just a bit longer, would be worthy of breaking away from the festival circuit and enjoying regular theatrical runs.

June 3, 2013 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…

Wonder Women: The Untold Story of American Superheroines concludes on a hopeful, somewhat rah-rah note.

Audience Reviews for Wonder Women! The Untold Story Of American Superheroines

Missed seeing this at the 2013 Cleveland International Film Fest, but shortly after, found it playing on Independent Lens on PBS. Perhaps it was a shortened version that I saw. It briefly explores some other heroic female tv characters, but 85-90% of it focuses on Wonder Woman. This doc reveals her strong comic book roots, years of domesticated tales, the inspiration the character provided to the feminist movement, her return as a powerful role model with feminine values in the hit '70s tv show, and the scarcity of female superheroines at the movies in a market with a surplus of superheroes, but conceivably with many bias still providing roadblocks. The interviewees are all quite riveting and the graphics help the story along very well.
