Mythcreants has a panel at Seattle’s GeekGirlCon this year. Here’s the description.

Matriarchies, Patriarchies, and Beyond: Depicting Gender in Your Fictional World

Are you tired of “egalitarian” futures where 90% of leaders happen to be male? Are you sick of matriarchies where evil women can’t wait to oppress men? Join Mythcreants for a discussion on depicting gender equality, creating realistic matriarchies, and portraying patriarchies in a subversive way. We’ll offer tips for choosing how your fictional culture approaches gender and describe destructive stereotypes we’d all be better off without. While we’re at it, we’ll rant and/or rave about franchises like Star Trek, Wheel of Time, Teen Wolf, Discworld, Battlestar Galactica, Game of Thrones — and more!

Oren, Mike, myself and special guest Rhys Subitch will be on the panel.

GeekGirlCon is Saturday October 10th and Sunday October 11th, at The Conference Center across the street from the Washington State Convention Center. Our panel is at 11:30 am on Saturday in room LL3. Passes will probably sell out before the con begins, so get them right away.

See you there!
