Are you a fan of superheros? It could earn you a University degree!
Well not quite, but The University of Iowa is now offering a new honors class called “Wonder Woman Unleashed: A Hero for Our Times.”
The course is taught by professor Anna Barker who told the Iowa City Press Citizen: “What fascinated me about Wonder Woman, she has been in print continuously since 1941. She is admired by multiple generations of women. I’ve talked to 5-year-olds who wear Wonder Woman backpacks and absolutely think that they’re Wonder Woman. And I’ve talked to women in their 80s that grew up in the time that the Linda Carter television series was coming out in the 1970s and they self-identified with Wonder Woman as a great role model for women in the United States.”
….and my dad told me I was wasting my time reading all those comic books!
