Wonder Woman was designed to bring the world to matriarchy

After reading Noah Berlatsky's article in The New Republic last week, I wrote about the similarities between Catwoman and Wonder Woman. Catwoman lost her whip and Wonder Woman's magic lasso, which compelled people to obey, got replaced by a sword.


Last December Mr. Berlatsky published a book about the super-heroine: Wonder Woman: Bondage and Feminism in the Marston/Peter Comics, 1941-1948. This week Vice interviewed the author on his recent book:

"William Marston, the psychologist and comic author who created Wonder Woman, believed that the only way to save the world from war was for women to rule the world and for men to become more like women. Marston was, among other things, a noted psychological researcher and an enthusiastic bondage fetishist; he believed comic books were a great form for educational, anti-patriarchy propaganda. Wonder Woman was designed to bring the world to matriarchy through confronting abuse and modeling girl power, genderfucking, bondage play, and erotic mind control."
