Happy Birthday 80th Birthday Gloria Steinem, the Woman Who Put the Wonder Back in Wonder Woman
Gloria Steinem is 80 years old today and as one of the architects and leaders of second wave feminism there is much to be thankful to her for. But because this blog focuses on the women of DC Comics, there is another reason to be thankful for her - she is instrumental in making Wonder Woman have a resurgence in popularity in the 70s by putting together a book containing her early strips and, of course, putting her on the first cover of Ms. Magazine.
She also pushed DC to undo the “New” mod Wonder Woman of the 70s and give Wonder Woman back her powers.
Steinem said about Wonder Woman:
“Looking back now at these Wonder Woman stories from the forties, I am amazed by the strength of their feminist message. Wonder Woman symbolizes many of the values of the women’s culture that feminists are now trying to introduce into the mainstream.”
While Wonder Woman has appeared on Gloria Steinem’s magazine several times in addition to the one above, Gloria has only appeared along with Wonder Woman once in Darwyn Cooke's The New Frontier Special (with art by J. Bone where Wonder Woman and Canary break up a Playboy club.
And there at, literally, the end is a bunny who resembles Gloria Steinem who famously went undercover as a Bunny for an Esquire article.
