From the back cover:
This book solidifies Lillian Robinsons place in that small pantheon of scholars who deserve to be recognized as feminist superheroes in their own right. No feminist scholar in our time has tackled the range of diverse topics that Robinson has, and Wonder Women extends that range even further. Robinson probes the meanings of Wonder Woman, her sisters, and their ordinary avatars with her trademark wit and élan, brilliantly situating this relatively neglected chapter of popular culture in contexts that include Greek myths, social and political history, literature, economics, art history, media studies, gender studies, and postmodern theory. Bravo for this engaging, imaginative, and beautifully-written tour de force!.
–Shelley Fisher Fishkin, Stanford University

In her sparkling new book, Lillian Robinson looks at Wonder Women - all of them - Supergirl, Invisible Girl, She-Hulk - and examines what these cartoon heroines mean for everyday life. Can you balance a home, career, and the struggle for justice? What aout men? Does flying help?

This book will delight and provoke anyone interested in the history of feminism or the importance of comics in contemporary life.
