A remarkable exploration of Wonder Woman's creation, mysterious identity, and evolution-and her extraordinary impact on her legions of fans. For generations, Wonder Woman has been a symbol of equality and female empowerment, her complex saga deeply rooted within the feminist movement. A staple of the comic book industry, she is arguably the best-known female superhero of all time. In Wonder Woman: Warrior, Disrupter, Feminist Icon, Regina Luttrell details this legendary superhero's origins, history, and evolution, from an ambassador of peace and love to the fiercest warrior in the DC Universe. Luttrell reveals how Wonder Woman's journeys are a reflection of each wave within the feminist movement and how her impact on culture and society continues to be felt today. Wonder Woman has become the epitome of technological sophistication, globalization, and modern-day feminism. She is truly a warrior, a disrupter, and a feminist icon. Luttrell's fascinating history includes the perspectives of famed feminist Gloria Steinem in her essay "Wonder Woman," as well as personal interviews with creator William Moulton Marson's surviving family members. Featuring a captivating examination of the oft-overlooked contributions of Marston's life partners and inspirations Elizabeth Holloway Marston and Olive Byrne, Wonder Woman is an incredible, in-depth exploration of this iconic feminist superhero.
