What does Wonder Women Teach You?

Does she teach you to be strong? Does she teach you to be independent? Does she teach you to be a hero?

If any of these questions resonate with you, then you check out The History of the Universe as Told by Wonder Woman. This is a documentary in progress that asks people what female superheroes teach them and how female superheroes changed our world. They have interviewed a ton of people including Gloria Steinem, Lynda Carter, and Lindsay Wagner.

From their Kickstarter page:

The goal of the film is to explore how female heroes have fared in popular culture. We're using Wonder Woman as the central figure in this story, as she's the rare example of a female hero who doesn't require rescue and determines her own actions and adventures. The film not only serves as an inquiry into our evolving values about women as agents of strength, authority and leadership, but also reminds us of our common need -- no matter our gender, race, class or sexual orientation -- for stories that tell us we can all be heroes.

Watch the video with details below, then go check out their Kickstarter page!

I haven't spent much time on Kickstarter but this is a great project on there that should supported by us all.
