    The Grandee Caper! last edited by trickled on 09/02/22 10:48PM View full history

    The now-homeless Wonder Woman moves in with her former assistant Cathy Perkins, whom she learns is now enrolled in a women's liberation group.

    After Cathy Perkins starts a fight with some wolfish “admirers” of Diana (and Diana ends it), the now-homeless Diana moves in with her former assistant, whom she learns is now enrolled in a women’s liberation group and is taking karate lessons. Diana is offered a job at Grandee’s Department Store by Mr. Grandee, its owner, who wishes to pay her big bucks for appearing in ads for his store as the symbol of the new liberated woman. Unfortunately, Cathy’s group learns that Grandee is paying his all-female staff below minimum wage, which he can do because he buys goods from local sweatshops, thus avoiding the legal entangements of dealing in out-of-state goods. When the group holds a meeting about the situation, some thugs hired by Grandee attempt to break it up but are defeated by Diana. Nonetheless, they hold Cathy hostage and manage a retreat. Diana trails them back to Grandee’s store, defeats them and Grandee, and frees Cathy. Nonetheless, at the next meeting of the group, a contingent of women storms in and angrily accuses them of causing the unemployment of 250 women who worked at the now-closed Grandee’s Department Store.

     Despite being somewhat inspired by the women’s lib movement in the 1970s, this is the first issue which addressed it directly.   Diana returns to without a job and is almost hired by Mr. Grandee, a lascivious man with money as his only motivator.   He makes Diana an offer she almost can’t refuse but then does.   It later turns out that he is paying his mostly all-female workforce one quarter below the minimum wage, and Diana and friends go to rectify the problem (as well as to rescue Cathy, Di...
