Wonder Women! The Untold Story of American Superheroines

When: Thu., March 7, 6 & 8 p.m. 2013

One critic calls Wonder Women! The Untold Story of American Superheroines "candy for your inner feminist." A viewing of the documentary's trailer shows why: It traces the rise of the female superhero persona during World War II, takes it through the Women's Lib movement, and hits upon influential punk rock girls and strong characters in TV and film, from Buffy the Vampire Slayer to Terminator's Sarah Connor. Catch the free Community Cinema screening at 6 or 8 tonight at the Tim Gill Center for Public Media (315 E. Costilla St., ifsoc.org). Might I recommend wearing your "Girls Kick Ass" shirt versus your Batman or Spiderman garb? — Matthew Schniper
