WGS 201 Wonder Woman: Sheroe, Amazon Princess, Feminist Icon In this course, we will delve into the politics and secret history of one of the most popular feminist icons and symbols of female power: Wonder Woman. A central theme of the course is the social construction of feminine power; the role of pop culture and the media in shaping this and how iconic representations of power translate off the page into the "real world." The rise and fall (and re-ascent) of Wonder Woman's cultural status becomes a fascinating lens to examine the Women's Rights/Lib Movements she was assigned to bridge. We will also explore the stories of real-life Wonder Women, the "sheores" who are fighting for truth, justice and gender equality ... without the help of magic lassos, arm bands and invisible jets. This class coincides with the June release of the new "Wonder Woman" movie!
