Professor Marston & The Wonder Women, a film launching production this week, purports to be the true story of Wonder Woman's credited creator, William Moulton Marston, and the two women with whom he lived in a polyamorous marriage, Elizabeth Holloway and Olive Byrne, but it remains to be seen what version of the story it will tell.
This past Saturday, February 20th, would have been the 123rd birthday of Elizabeth Holloway Marston. She’s not exactly what you’d call famous, but you’ve probably guessed who she is from the headline and illustration above.
Elizabeth Holloway Marston was a psychologist, and the wife of fellow psychologist William Moulton Marston, who’s credited with creating Wonder Woman. At least, she was one of his wives, depending on how you look at it. She was his legal wife, to be sure, but the two lived with a third partner, Olive Byrne, and each woman bore two of Marston’s children.
