Last week, I had the pleasure of appearing on KCUR 89.3 FM’s Up to Date along with Kristy Guevara-Flanagan, the director of Wonder Women! The Untold Story of American Superheroines and Dr. Brenda Bethman, the Director of the Women’s Center at UMKC.
We discussed superheroines and how society’s shifting view of women affect the ways heroines have been presented over the decades. We spent a good deal of time on Wonder Woman and heroines from film and TV but we also touched on a few Golden Age classics like the Red Tornado, Sheena, Olga Mesmer, and the Woman in Red.
If you missed the live broadcast, I encourage you to check out the recording at Wonder Women: The Strength Of Female Superheroes.
