Coronavirus: Events may be cancelled and venues closed at short notice, you are advised to check on their websites before making a trip.

Attend this screening of the 1975 pilot of the TV show Wonder Woman, which was released in the United Nations’ Year of the Woman and the year of the Sex Discrimination Act in the UK.

Placing the pilot in context of ‘second-wave’ feminism and discussion around the representation of women in media at the time, Dr Amanda Potter will introduce 70s Wonder Woman with a reflection on her more recent incarnation. The 2017 version travels back to World War One era London, when women did not have the vote and has been claimed, by some critics, as a post-feminist superhero and by others as embodying ‘third-wave’ feminism. How feminist is Wonder Woman, then and now? You decide.

Dr Amanda Potter is a Research Fellow at the Open University, where she completed her PhD in 2014 on viewer reception of classical myth on television. She has published on Xena: Warrior Princess, Charmed, Doctor Who, Torchwood, HBO Rome, Starz Spartacus and mythology based fanfiction.

The British Library of Political and Economic Science was founded in 1896, a year after the London School of Economics and Political Science. It has been based in the Lionel Robbins Building since 1978 and houses many world class collections, including The Women's Library.
