Want to know what the discussion was about at a recent screening of the documentary film Wonder Women!: The Untold Story of American Superheroines at the Macaulay Honors College? This week s Listening In segment has an excerpt from feminist Shelby Knox that may get you thinking.
A self-described 'good Southern Baptist girl,' Shelby Knox herself has pledged abstinence until marriage. When she finds that Lubbock has some of the highest rates of teen pregnancy and sexually transmitted diseases in the state, and her county's high schools teach abstinence as the only safe sex, she becomes an unlikely advocate for comprehensive sex education.
In this episode of our Behind the Lens series, Rose Rosenblatt and Marion Lipschutz talk about why they started making nonfiction films, including 'The Education of Shelby Knox' and 'Live Free or Die,' their collaborative process and share their advice for young filmmakers.
Wonder Women! The Untold Story of American Superheroines traces the fascinating evolution and legacy of Wonder Woman. From the birth of the comic book superheroine in the 1940s to the blockbusters of today, WONDER WOMEN! looks at how popular representations of powerful women often reflect society s anxieties about women s liberation. WONDER WOMEN! goes behind the scenes with Lynda Carter, Lindsay Wagner, comic writers and artists, and real life superheroines such as Gloria Steinem, Shelby Knox and others who offer an enlightening and entertaining counterpoint to the male dominated superhero genre.
