WONDER WOMEN! goes behind the scenes with Lynda Carter, Lindsay Wagner, comic writers and artists, and real-life superheroines such as Gloria Steinem, Kathleen Hanna and others, who offer an enlightening and entertaining counterpoint to the male-dominated superhero genre.
The panel discussion will focus on the portrayal of women in media, women and girls in Geek Culture, and the obstacles and challenges young women face in the world and workforce today.
