Forgotten Women of Genre: Vernon Lee

Mar 13, 2020, 12:00 PM EDT

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.

Today’s subject is a writer, an academic, an activist, and a pioneer. She also wrote political ghost stories, queer supernatural romance, and anti-war dramas featuring Death as the ultimate choreographer. History may have tried to erase her efforts but we’re here to bring her back under the spotlight where she belongs. This is the story of Vernon Lee.

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.
