Kameron Hurley, author of The Stars Are Legion, The Geek Feminist Revolution, God's War, and many other epic books, joins me to talk about female warriors — and their frequent erasure from our narratives.
Is it "realistic" to write about badass female fighters? What can we learn about the roles of women in war, and in society at large, by looking at history, cultures throughout the world, and the very real women who surround us in our everyday lives?
All this and more in today's episode.
