JIll Lepore Public Lecture: "The Secret History of Wonder Woman"

March 9, 2016


4:00 PM - 6:00 PM

Jill Lepore will deliver a public lecture drawn from her bestselling book "The Secret History of Wonder Woman." Please join us for this public lecture unravelling a fascinating history.
The New York Times Book Review stated: “Lepore’s brilliance lies in knowing what to do with the material she has. In her hands, the Wonder Woman story unpacks not only a new cultural history of feminism, but a theory of history as well.”
The San Francisco Chronicle warns: “If it makes your head spin to imagine a skimpily clad pop culture icon as (spoiler alert!) a close relation of feminist birth control advocate Margaret Sanger, then prepare to be dazzled by the truths revealed in historian Jill Lepore’s “The Secret History of Wonder Woman.”
This lecture is free and open to the public.
