The bizarre history behind the creation of Wonder Woman is weird even for the world of superheroesJill Lepore who is amazing in her own right in that she s a history professor at Harvard and she writes for The New Yorker gives us the story of William Moulton Marston an American psychologist and the man who invented the lie detector test After trying and failing in several careers in 1941 he turned to the burgeoning field of comic books and created Wonder Woman with the help of his wife and his longtime mistress Marston considered himself a feminist and had been influenced by the suffragist movement in the early 1900s The discussions about the appearance of Wonder Woman were interesting and it s not surprising that the character caused a fair amount of controversy in those early years especially since she was practically naked and the comics featured a lot of bondage Lepore s book includes some great panels from various comics and lots of photographs I listened to this book on audio but I was glad I had a print copy to flip through because the illustrations were so helpfulI was inspired to read this book after seeing the Wonder Woman movie I heart Gal Godot and I enjoyed learning about this unusual bit of history I was especially intrigued to hear about the early days of other comic book heroes including Superman and Batman and to learn about the women s movement in America This is a fascinating story and I would recommend Lepore s book to other readersMeaningful PassageWonder Woman isn t only an ian princess with badass boots She s the missing link in a chain of events that begins with the woman suffrage campaigns of the 1910s and ends with the troubled place of feminism fully a century later Feminism made Wonder Woman And then Wonder Woman remade feminism which hasn t been altogether good for feminism Superheroes who are supposed to be better than everyone else are excellent at clobbering people they re lousy at fighting for eualityBut Wonder Woman is no ordinary comic book superhero The secrets this book reveals and the story it tells place Wonder Woman not only within the history of comic books and superheroes but also at the very center of the histories of science law and politics Superman owes a debt to science fiction Batman to the hard boiled detective Wonder Woman s debt is to the fictional feminist utopia and to the struggle for women s rights Her origins lie in William Moulton Marston s past and in the lives of the women he loved they created Wonder Woman too Wonder Woman is no ordinary comic book character because Marston was no ordinary man and his family was no ordinary family Marston was a polymath He was an expert in deception he invented the lie detector test He led a secret life he had four children by two women they lived together under one roof They were masters of the art of concealment Their favorite hiding place was the comics they produced Marston was a scholar a professor and a scientist Wonder Woman began on a college campus in a lecture hall and in a laboratory Marston was a lawyer and a filmmaker Wonder Woman began in a courthouse and a movie theater The women Marston loved were suffragists feminists and birth control advocates Wonder Woman began in a protest march a bedroom and a birth control clinic The red bustier isn t the half of it

Actual rating 35 starsThis is a fascinating read about the creator of Wonder Woman who was one exceptionally odd man He seems to have genuinely believed that women would rule the world but his own home was far from a matriarchy he had one wife to work twelve hours a day in New York City supporting the family and another one both Margaret Sanger s niece and a former student to raise the four children the two women managed to produce with him in the 1930s when she was not writing puff pieces about him for Family CircleIn background he was a psychologist and invented a lie detector using blood pressure readings while still an undergraduate at Harvard but never patented it and went on to be blacklisted from academe for the combination of his esoteric teachings and his very odd home life which also included in the 1920s sex club meetings Then after failing to make a splash in Hollywood he let his two wives support his family and raise it while he pottered about the house in his underwear only getting dressed for the occasional private client visit His attempts to sell the FBI on his lie detector only resulted in J Edgar Hoover opening a file on himAnd then in 1941 he invented Wonder Woman and suddenly had a massive success on his hands And she s a reflection of her strange creator who genuinely believed in feminism and women s rights but also was one very kinky man She s as obsessed with lie detecting as he was tooLepore claims however that American feminism having molded Wonder Woman which she proves thoroughly that Wonder Woman then went on to mold American feminism and that s the problem it s had since 1972She goes nowhere near proving this supposition And only makes a feeble attempt at it in the last chapter or so It would be a stronger work without it
