Wonder Woman Day!

Spotlight on Wonder Woman and The Marston Family
by Tracey Maknis

As a young girl growing up in the 60s and 70s, Wonder Woman was the one hero I could relate to. Her wisdom, compassion, and message of love, backed up by her strength and powers made her a symbol of hope and motivation to many.

Today, Wonder Woman is getting some well-deserved attention. She recently celebrated her 75th anniversary, she was honored by the USPS with her own set of commemorative Forever stamps, and she finally has her own movie.

What people may not know is that part of Wonder Woman's family has dedicated a portion of their lives to creating and maintaining the Wonder Woman Family Museum, located in Bethel Connecticut. Since the museum is not open to the public, Wonder Woman fans wishing to view the "Wonder" must contact Christie Marston, Wonder Woman's granddaughter and curator of the museum at, @ChristieMarston (Twitter), or (Facebook). To talk with like-minded Wonder Woman fans head to Share the Wonder: the Marston Wonder Woman Message Project on Facebook.

I have been fortunate enough to visit the museum on multiple occasions and conduct interviews with Christie and her dad, Pete, while he was alive. In tribute to Wonder Woman and the Marston family, I humbly present, Spotlight on Wonder Woman and The Marston Family.
