Wonder Woman created by polyamorous household including Mount Holyoke alum!

This book review of Jill Lepore's "The Secret History of Wonder Woman" taught me something I did not know. I knew that William Marston and his wife Elizabeth Holloway Marston (Mount Holyoke 1915) were the co-creators. But this book reveals that there was actually a third woman involved, their partner Olive Byrne. (A fourth woman, Marjorie Wilkes Huntley, was also involved, though not always living with them as Olive did.)

How about that ... a queer poly parentage to Wonder Woman! This book looks fascinating.
