Traces the birth and evolution of Wonder Woman and introduces audiences to a dynamic group of fictional and real life superheroines.

***SPECIAL BONUS***

We are offering a prize package of our hand-screened t-shirt, signed limited edition poster, AND the DVD to the individual whose pledge breaks our new 20K goal. 

**PROJECT FUNDING UPDATE**

We feel like we've been given super powers having surpassed our fundraising goal! Thanks again to our nearly 300 supporters. Having reached 100 percent means our film will be professionally sound mixed and color graded with a festival print ready for our South by Southwest premiere in just a couple of weeks, but this doesn't mean we don't want and need your continued support!

What would additional funding make possible? To start we really want your help to raise awareness for our film.  Any additional funds raised will be directly applied to promoting the film during the festival circuit, publicity materials, building out our website with outtakes and insightful scenes that didn't quite make the final cut, and supporting our community screenings and eventual broadcast. We want to bring this documentary to countless cities and continue the dialogue about the involvement of women in comics and action-based media. We'd love to raise another $5,000 on top of our original goal to support these efforts, bringing our grand total to $20,000.

Our team is also thinking of other ways to promote the film and reach out to organizations focused on women's issues. We'd love your support in continuing to share our project with your networks, via Twitter, Facebook, etc, and we still have a lot of rad rewards to offer–only available during this fundraiser!

Congratulations again to to everyone who made the KICKSTARTER campaign successful. And thank you for all your ideas, your time, your energy and your donations! We are so excited for our film to be out in the world!

Help us raise the money we need to fund the WORLD PREMIER of our feature documentary, WONDER WOMEN! THE UNTOLD STORY OF AMERICAN SUPERHEROINES at the SOUTH BY SOUTHWEST Film Festival in Austin, TX this March, 2012.

We have already done the hard work of making the movie, and many of

you have supported us along the way (some of you may remember our project by its working title: THE HISTORY OF THE UNIVERSE AS TOLD BY WONDER WOMAN). Now we need to professionally sound mix and color grade the film and prepare a festival print. Help us bring the film to a festival near you this year!

WONDER WOMEN! THE UNTOLD STORY OF AMERICAN SUPERHEROINES traces the fascinating evolution and legacy of Wonder Woman. From the birth of the comic book superheroine in the 1940s, to the blockbusters of today, WONDER WOMEN! looks at how popular representations of powerful women often reflect society’s anxieties about women’s liberation.

To date we've interviewed many articulate and dynamic women such as activists Gloria Steinem and Shelby Knox, actresses Lynda Carter (Wonder Woman) and Lindsay Wagner (The Bionic Woman), and punk rock star Kathleen Hanna (Bikini Kill & Le Tigre), as well as many others who offer an enlightening and entertaining counterpoint to the male-dominated superhero genre.

WONDER WOMEN! introduces audiences to a cast of fictional and real life superheroines fighting for positive role models for girls, both on screen and off, and reminds us of our common human need for stories that tell us we can all be heroes.
