Queer as Fact

Wonder Woman (1941-1948)

June 15, 2020

Welcome to the first Queer as Fiction episode for Season 5! 

Today we'll be talking about the DC comics superhero, Wonder Woman. 

Join us for a wide-ranging discussion covering everything from the suffragist movement to kinky sorority party rituals and find out exactly how a disgraced Harvard professor came to be writing a comic book that he described as "psychological propaganda for the new type of woman who, I believe, should rule the world.”

This episode includes references to a series of images from the Wonder Woman comics. You can find the source post for this episode, which contains these images, on our new website.

Please note there are a couple of content warnings we failed to include in our recording:

This episode includes period-typical misogyny and descriptions of a hunger strike.
