Wonder Woman and Lawyers

Christie Marston writes  (Hollywood Reporter) about her grandmother, lawyer Elizabeth Holloway Marston, who was the inspiration for Wonder Woman, the creation of  her husband, William  Moulton Marston.

Mr. Marston was also an attorney, as well as quite an adventurous soul. Read more about him, his wife Elizabeth, his mistress, and all the feminist and sexual symbols in his work (I said he was adventurous) in Jill Lepore's book The Secret History of Wonder Woman (Random House, 2014). More here from NPR.
