Wonder Woman to the Rescue
Wonder Woman, the first female super hero, appeared in 1941, a time when the world was at war, and women were joining Rosie the Riveter in the war effort. Wonder Woman was the creation of William Moulton Marston, a psychologist and a feminist of a sort. In The American Scholar, Marston wrote at the time: “Not even girls want to be girls so long as our feminine archetype lacks force, strength, and power…. Women’s strong qualities have become despised because of their weakness. The obvious remedy is to create a character with all the strength of Superman plus all the allure of a good and beautiful woman.”
