TONIGHT ON PBS: Wonder Women! The Untold Story of American Superheroines

"The film examines the role of superheroines, particularly Wonder Woman and her evolution over multiple decades. The strong woman reflects her time period and the film does well to highlight each change. The editing, flow of the film and even the graphics are very impressive."
-- Toledo Free Press
