What new stories can feminist myth-making offer to help create a habitable future? 

Authors Maria Dahvana Headley (The Mere Wife), Sophie Mackintosh (The Water Cure), and Preti Taneja (We That Are Young) - chaired by author So Mayer - discuss the many forms of feminist myth-making in literature and read extracts from their novels.

This recording 'Us vs. Them: Feminist myth-making, power and disobedient women' took place at New Suns: A Feminist Literary Festival at the Barbican on 3 November 2018

New Suns: A Feminist Literary Festival is a bookfair and day of talks, workshops and screenings, exploring contemporary feminism through the lens of mythology.
