Jill Lepore is a bit of a wonder woman herself certainly a wonder of a historian She uncovers unclothes and satisfactorily binds with ropes and chains the better to dispose of it the myth that Wonder Woman was a feature of woman s liberation rather than one of male dominance Sadly the scantily clad Wonder Woman was modeled on the real life live in girlfriend of the psychologist who created her and who himself exhibited the dominant male model all too well Lepore not only gives us the background of William Moulton Marston Harvard trained psychologist and developer of the systolic blood pressure polygraph but also of his wife Sadie Elizabeth Holloway herself an almost PhD All But Dissertation who studied psychology and law Olive Richard Byrne is the younger woman a former student of Marston s who shares their homes their children and their beds Marston and his smart and admiring women lovers lived unconventional family lives in the 1920s 30s and 40s in New England with Marston fathering the children of at least two of the women in their large and ramshackle house to which they moved near the coast in Rye New YorkAlthough Marston had lots of experience with strong women and claimed to like admire even love them he and the women themselves never really progressed beyond the idea of euality between the sexes to the thing itself Feminists in name only I d have to say since one might argue that Marston was simply a failure as a wage earner rather than a dependent louche His wife Elizabeth earned wages for family upkeep Olive took care of the children and Marstonmust havehopefullykept them happy sexually though they probably could have done without him there also Lepore probably knows about WMM in my mind I call him Willie than any single person alive and she was frank about his delusions He began his comic Wonder Woman as an answer to male superheroes and debuted Wonder Woman in hot pants and a tiara in December 1941 Maybe he wasn t such a talented guy though his women were pretty admirable and talented No wonder Wonder Woman But there was not to be a straight line from 1920s feminism and the right to vote to Wonder Women and euality for women Marston died in 1947 someone else took over the writing of the comic and all advances made with a woman forging a new path during the war years were rolled backSomehow Wonder Woman never really made the leap from helping out to helping herself Marston may have been enlightened for his time god bless his little willie but he would have been sacrificed at the altar of euality long before this at the hand of s living today in America Lepore does a good job of reminding us of our past present and future if we don t manage to prove her wrong She would like that Wonder Women LiveI listened to the Random House Audio production of this title read by Lepore herself Lepore has an energetic style and a young sounding sueaky voice I appreciate having her add the emphases where she intended as well as wringing the humor from her writing I can t say I found the history of the self important Marston and his often bound and chained Wonder Woman as interesting as Lepore did but she fortunately puts Marston s self promotion in the perspective of the times and he and his ladies tried for something different with their educations and their lives
