7: Deep Thoughts About Wonder Woman

Updated: Jul 2

October 10, 2023

Suffering Sappho! Wonder Woman’s role in our culture is far more complex than Tracie’s childhood love for Lynda Carter (and Wonder Woman underoos) prepared her for.

In this more-meta-than-usual episode, Tracie dives into the history of the world’s most famous Amazonian Nazi-fighter. From Wonder Woman’s comic book origins–she sprang fully formed from the mind of William Moulton Marston (a 1940s-era feminist, lie-detector inventor, and bondage enthusiast)--to the ways Diana’s characterization both empowers and disenfranchises women, Tracie and Emily discuss the complicated legacy of our favorite feminist superhero.

Join us as we talk about beauty, grace, and power–and what they all mean in a society that insists on hierarchies.
