Secret History of Wonder Woman

Jill Lepore writes a story rich in historical detection about the most popular female superhero of all time while revealing a fascinating family story and history of twentieth-century feminism.

Wonder Woman was created in 1941 by William Moulton Marston.  Marston's life was greatly influenced by early suffragists, starting with Emmeline Pankhurst, and including Olive Byrne and Margaret Sanger.  Marston and Byrne wrote a regular column for “Family Circle “celebrating conventional family life, even as they themselves pursued lives of extraordinary nonconformity.  Marston’s other claim to fame —-he invented the lie detector test.
