THE SURPRISING ORIGINS OF WONDER WOMAN: “Frankly, Wonder Woman is psychological propaganda for the new type of woman who, I believe, should rule the world.”

And: “Because Marston kept his true relationship with Olive Byrne a secret, he kept his family’s ties to Margaret Sanger a secret, too. Marston, Byrne and Holloway, and even Harry G. Peter, the artist who drew Wonder Woman, had all been powerfully influenced by the suffrage, feminism and birth control movements. And each of those movements had used chains as a centerpiece of its iconography.” Stacy McCain, call your office!
