Feminist Science Fiction and Fantasy with Emma and Niba


Emma hypes up an option from June’s Feminist Book Club box, Trans-Galactic Bike Ride: Feminist Bicycle Science Fiction Stories of Transgender and Nonbinary Adventures, edited by Lydia Rogue. Then, using the Realm of Elderlings series by Robin Hobb, Niba takes an in depth look into feminism in fantasy as we watch female and non-binary characters confront the societal expectations that attempt to define them in their fantastical world of magic, dragons and liveships.
