William Moulton Marston: The one truly great contribution of my Wonder Woman strip to moral education of the young. The only hope for peace is to teach people who are full of pep and unbound force to enjoy being bound… Only when the control of self by others is more pleasant than the unbound assertion of self in human relationships can we hope for a stable, peaceful human society…
Giving to others, being controlled by them, submitting to other people cannot possibly be enjoyable without a strong erotic element.
– Gerard Jones, Men of Tomorrow
The next 100 years will see the beginning of an American matriarchy—a nation of amazons in the psychological rather than the physical sense. In 500 years there will be a serious sex battle. And in 1000 years women will definitely rule this country.
– Neglected Amazons to Rule Men in 1000 yrs., Says Psychologist (Washington Post, November 11, 1937)
