PSA: Your Default Narrative Settings Are Not Apolitical
If you are a writer, this is well worth reading. Too often we assume that the roles of women in the past were insignficant, forgetting that history was mostly written by men. This article addresses the roles of both women and other races in the past, and challenges the idea of Science Fiction and Fantasy as a realm of dominant white men. There are many good links referring to important historical figures or groups that debunk the myth. Thanks to my awesome friend Maggie for sharing it!
