Hot Topics – Game Changers: Women in Adventure Storytelling
We used to ask the question, ‘Where are the women in adventure storytelling?’ This panel answers that question and takes it to a new plateau. The new question is, “Who are the women in adventure storytelling, and how are they reshaping a genre?” Although adventure is no longer an exclusively male realm, and women are not fighting the same battles they had to fight twenty—or even ten years ago to be seen and heard in a genre that was previously far from inclusive—this panel takes a modern stance on the battles we still fight. These women believe our powerful female perspectives in both film and literature are game changers. With Hilary Oliver, Kate Harris, Sarah Marquis, Katie Ives and Hilaree O’Neill, moderated by Amy Gigi Alexander.
