Wonder Women: Feminisms and Superheroes
In her sparkling new book, Lillian Robinson looks at Wonder Women - all of them - Supergirl, Invisible Girl, Invisible Woman, She Hulk - and examines what these cartoon heroines mean for everyday life. Can you balance a home, career, and the struggle for justice? What about men? Does flying help?
Drawing upon her long career as a formidable feminist critic yet wearing her knowledge lightly, Lillian Robinson finds the essence of wonder women in our non-animated three-dimensional world. This book will delight and provoke anyone interested in the history of feminism or the importance of comics in contemporary life.
