Feminists Take on the Romance Genre

Tuesday May 30: 7:00PM 8:00PM

For years the romance genre has been dismissed as nothing but fantastical fluff designed to be an escape for overworked housewives, featuring damsels in distress needing a big, strong man to come to the rescue. These women are here to say NOT TRUE! Romance writing can star powerful women, ones who take control of their fate and deal with down-to-Earth realities.

Join this powerful panel of romance writers discuss feminism in relation to their genre, featuring:

  • Sarah MacLean
  • Maya Rodale
  • Eloisa James
  • Julia Quinn

All moderated by Cristina Arreola from Bustle!
