Ode to Leading Women
The year of 2016 has come and the titles, “Woman Lead,” and “Female Hero,” are rapidly evolving. For example, Rey in Star Wars 7 has spurred many discussions! What have creators fought for in the past for their women title characters and what key ingredients do the creators of today pour into their female leads? Hear from Genese Davis (The Holder’s Dominion), Karen Karbo (Lessons on Savoring Life), Colleen Houck (Tiger Curse series), and Monica Drake (Clown Girl) as they share their creation process for women heroes, what they think female characters can tackle, and what they foresee happening to female heroes in the future.
