Women in Science Fiction and Fantasy

Description

Science fiction and fantasy have been dubbed the modern versions of ancient mythic stories, but where are women’s voices within the process of today’s myth making? Women remain underrepresented in these genres despite famous writers such as Ursula Le Guinn, Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley and Anne McCaffrey. Join us for a conversation with writers to explore the rise of women in science fiction and fantasy and the benefits of encouraging women’s voices within these genres.

Supporting diverse perspectives within the creation of modern day myths and narratives is a step towards combatting institutional and cultural violence and is in line with our Help Anna campaign.
