[quote quote=3590]Another interesting article – this one about Wonder Woman’s origins and how that didn’t work out as intended. Fits right in with this subject and I thought it was really interesting – I had no idea of the historical background.

A great quote from this article:
“ ‘Wonder Woman’ was conceived by Dr. Marston to set up a standard among children and young people of strong, free, courageous womanhood; to combat the idea that women are inferior to men, and to inspire girls to self-confidence and achievement in athletics, occupations and professions monopolized by men” because “the only hope for civilization is the greater freedom, development and equality of women in all fields of human activity.” Marston put it this way: “Frankly, Wonder Woman is psychological propaganda for the new type of woman who should, I believe, rule the world.”
