Panelists Emma Donoghue, Sarah Meehan Sirk and Casey Plett discuss how their work subverts traditional gender roles and how the current women’s empowerment and gender equality movement does or does not impact their art or work as women authors.
“Girls don’t slam doors like that.
“Girls keep their knees together when they sit down.
"And worse still, when I asked some questions, 'That’s none of girls’ business.' I continued to slam doors and sit awkwardly as possible, thinking that by such measures I kept myself free."
