In Wonder Women: The Untold Story of American Superheroines by Kristy Guevara-Flanagan, you can trace the fascinating evolution and legacy of the original comic book Amazon, Wonder Woman.

From her creation in the 1940s to the superhero blockbusters of today, pop culture’s representations of powerful women often reflect society’s anxieties about women’s liberation.
