Delving into the life of Wonder Woman's eccentric creator, psychologist William Moulton Marston, Jill Lepore, Harvard historian and New Yorker staff writer, delineates the heroine’s feminist origins (from the warrior princesses of the Amazon to iconic suffragists like Emmeline Pankhurst) and inspiration in the women with whom Marston shared a bed—his wife and mistress. This riveting exploration into the history of American pop culture details insights into the twentieth-century struggle for women's rights and, thereby, the notable state of feminism today.
