Forgotten Women of Genre: Frances Harper
March is Women's History Month. And while we at SYFY FANGRRLS celebrate women's achievements all year long, we're going above and beyond this month with Season 2 of our limited podcast series, Forgotten Women of Genre.
Frances Harper was an innovator of utopian fiction, a strident campaigner for civil rights and women’s suffrage, and a near-legendary figure in the fight for Black women’s rights during and after the American Civil War.
Science fiction, fantasy, and all associated genres have finally evolved from a niche interest into a mainstream staple. But the women who have been instrumental in creating and shaping the nerdverse have largely gone unrecognized. Until today. SYFY FANGRRLS' Forgotten Women of Genre tells the stories of the women who helped some of the most famous fantasy worlds become a reality.
New episodes of Forgotten Women of Genre will be released every weekday in March. Subscribe wherever you get your podcasts.
