Gather the girls & celebrate International Women's Day
The State Library of NSW is holding the documentary Wonder Women: The Untold Story of American Super-heroines.
The film is about tracing the interesting evolution and legacy of Wonder Woman, from her comic book birth in the 1940s to the blockbusters of today. Wonder Women introduces the audience to a dynamic group of super-heroines fighting for positive role models for girls and women, both on screen and off.
The movie goes behind the scenes with comic writers and artists and real-life super-heroines such as Gloria Steinem, Kathleen Hanna and others, who offer an enlightening and entertaining counterpoint to the male-dominated superhero genre.
The screening begins at 2pm and there will be discussions with some of Australia's own wonder women. DC Comic artist Nicola Scott, roller derby star Feisty Cuffs, manga artist Queenie Chan and astrologist Mystic Medusa will be chatting with filmmaker and journalist Daz Chandler.
Also, each ticket holder will go into the draw to win an original Butcher Billy Post Punk Super Friends Wonder Women T-Shirt!
It is one of the many ways to celebrate International Women's Day 2014!
It is suitable for all ages and dressing as your favourite super-heroine is encouraged. All the tickets are available for sale at the State Library of NSW and there will be prizes on the day.
The best way to get to the event is by train. Martin place, St James and Circular Quay train stations are the closest or alternatively you can get on the Sydney Explorer bus which stops at the library.
