Celebrate International Women’s Day!

Free Film presented by the Women Creating Change Project

Rossland Public Library, Saturday March 7, 3:30-5:00pm

WONDER WOMEN! THE UNTOLD STORY OF AMERICAN SUPERHEROINES traces the fascinating evolution and legacy of Wonder Woman. From the birth of the comic book superheroine in the 1940s to the blockbusters of today, WONDER WOMEN! looks at how popular representations of powerful women often reflect society’s anxieties about women’s liberation.  WONDER WOMEN! goes behind the scenes with Lynda Carter, Lindsay Wagner, comic writers and artists, and real-life superheroines such as Gloria Steinem, Kathleen Hanna and others, who offer an enlightening and entertaining counterpoint to the male-dominated superhero genre.  “What are the two greatest things on the planet? I’ll tell you. Bad-ass babes and comics. What happens when these two things collide? ..WONDER WOMEN …if you love your daughters, girlfriends, sisters and mothers; take them to see this fantastic gem of a movie.” – Kit Bryant, Little Village Magazine
