This week's episode of Graphic Policy Radio comes at a special time as we welcome special guest Kristy Guevara-Flanagan to talk about Wonder Women! The Untold Story of American Superheroines.
The documentary 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.
Kristy’s first feature-length film was an acclaimed documentary covering four years in the lives of four adolescent girls. Going on 13 was an official selection of Tribeca, Silverdocs, and many other international film festivals. It received funding from ITVS and was broadcast on public television in 2009. Kristy has also produced and directed several short films, including El Corrido De Cecilia Rios, a chronicle of the violent death of 15-year-old Cecilia Rios. It was an official selection of the Sundance Film Festival. Now an assistant professor at Diablo Valley College, Kristy has a MFA in Film Production from San Francisco State University.
The documentary recently had its television broadcast premiere in the United States on PBS's Independet Lens series.
Through June 14, 2013, you can see the complete film streaming on the PBS website.

Brain Injury Alliance -
hosted by Craig Sicilia Who are they, are they good for survivors, or are they another organization that wants to control them, control the resources and worse try to take the voice of brain injury awary from those living with brain injury.
there website has these bullets attached to it
We will act with honesty and with transparency We will be both trusting and trustworthy We will act in the expressed best interests of those we serve We will communicate openly and actively seek feedback We will encourage diversity of thought, people and ideas This is so far from what we have seen in our state its almost ironic. In the last several years we have seen a break up in the professionals that at one time were the only voice for brain injury. And many still think they are the voice for us. But the survivor network stands true to its mission, for us by us. We want to get a fair since of who the alliance is, in my state it was an exit for an organization that was and is out of touch with survivors and focuses on the money stage of our injury marketing and monetizing that stage. Before these survivors and their families lose everything they once had including themselves. We have probed in the BIAA though not perfect they appear to be moving in the right direction, I have sent emails out to some of the recent states and their directors and other professionals, as well as survivors from those areas. By appearance they have less regards for survivors and many states have abandoned their groups all together
We took some time off, but Graphic Policy Radio is back this Monday for the latest episode of comics and politics geekiness. We've got a lot to catch up on but some of the topics we're discussing are:
It's cool to kill kids again in comics. We discuss the death of the latest Robin and other kids being offed. Is Mutant a four (ok six) letter word? We talk about Uncanny Avengers and Havok's declaration. There was rumors about the death of Green Lantern John Stewart, but those plans were publicly denied. We talk killing off the beloved character. Our favorite recent reads and recommendations for comic fans! Tune in and call in to discuss!
