I just read an interesting article by Kameron Hurley over on A Dribble of Ink.
‘We have always fought’: Challenging the ‘Women, cattle, and slaves’ narrative. Well worth reading if you’re interested in rooting out the cultural misogyny ingrained in our media.
I try very hard to not tell lies about llamas in my writing, but I’m sure that it sneaks in, in ugly and insidious ways. Lately, I’ve been wondering if my book passes the Bechtel test. Plenty of named, female main characters…but how much do they actually talk about things that aren’t men? My current revision is going though and taking some of the scales off.
Good article, and a reminder to me about important stuff. (Also, the artwork is glorious)
