“There are plenty of images of women in science fiction. There are hardly any women.”

So said Joanna Russ, an early science fiction writer who authored a number of works in both that genre and fantasy, and is best known for her novel, The Female Man. Were she alive today, she might find the scene has changed—and for the better.

Please join us for a fascinating panel discussion on the role of women, both as creators and stars in science fiction yesterday and today. And we’ll include a special emphasis on the rise of women of color in SciFi and Fantasy.
