Breaking the rules in SFF

As part of the #FearlessWomen campaign, I have a guest post over at the Tor/Forge blog answering the question “ how does science fiction and fantasy uniquely explore gender, and specifically, how does she explore gender in City of Lies?”

This is a topic I’m particularly interested in as it can get a bit exhausting seeing the same sexist patriarchal BS play out in fantasy worlds where we are literally making up our own cultures and societies¬†and can do anything we want. Sometimes that seems to be ‘anything we want, as long as there are only boys and girls and they must have the same roles that we have decided apply in fictional fantasy settings’…

Anyway, check it out if you’re interested!
