For decades, the fictional world of superheroes was dominated by male characters. Wonder Woman was the only female with any real clout.

Filmmaker Kristy Guevara-Flanagan presents and leads a discussion of her feature documentary exploring the concept of heroic women from the birth of superheroes in the 1940s to the TV and big screen action blockbusters of today. Actresses Lynda (Wonder Woman) Carter and Lindsay (The Bionic Woman) Wagner, feminist Gloria Steinem, and punk rocker Kathleen Hanna are among those interviewed in the film.

Presented by the University of Missouri-Kansas City Women’s Center.
