The Secret History of Wonder Woman

I started reading it this week.

Illustration for article titled The Secret History of Wonder Woman

The author, Jill Lepore, includes some feminist history and how it influenced William Moulton Marston and as such the character/comic. And what's stood out to me is how quotes from feminists from the early 20th century are similar to what feminists are saying now. The same goes for the misogynistic quotes.

But the public at large used to take feminism seriously, amirite?! Loud sigh.

Has anyone else here read it?
