A film about the superhero Wonder Woman is one of several events planned in March to celebrate Women's History Month.

The Women and Gender Studies program will host a free screening of “Wonder Women! The Untold Story of American Superheroines” on Tuesday, March 12, at 7 p.m. at the Urban Institute for Contemporary Arts, 2 Fulton St. in Grand Rapids.

The film traces the evolution and legacy of Wonder Woman from the birth of the comic book legend in the 1940s to today, and includes interviews with Lynda Carter, Lindsay Wagner, comic writers and artists, and leaders such as Gloria Steinem and Kathleen Hanna.

Julia Mason, assistant professor of women and gender studies, will lead a discussion after the film.
