Wonder Woman at 80: Femininity and the Power of Virtue

March 16 @ 3 PM

Since first appearing on the pages of All Star Comics in 1941, Wonder Woman has become a pop-culture icon, with the Amazonian princess holding her own against the likes of Superman and Batman and headlining her own 1970s television series and now a hugely successful film franchise. But beyond her famous golden lasso and bullet-deflecting bracelets, Wonder Woman’s defining superpower is her ability to inspire hope and idealism, not to mention serving as an aspirational figure for generations of young fangirls.

Join popular author Leah Libresco Sargeant for a conversation about this most famous female superhero; her complex origins and modern mythology; and the central theme of “truth” in the recent movie, “Wonder Woman 1984.”
