Crossing the Gender Divide


Are there certain types of stories that appeal to men only? Or that appeal to women only? Why is this, and should it be the case? This panel is about how to tell stories that transcend socialized gender appeal and the importance of creating "guy" stories that women can find role models in inspiration in, but also "girl" stories that men can similarly embrace. It's also an opportunity to explore why those concepts exist to begin with and the ways in which we encourage them or discourage them through storytelling and media.
