Strong Female Characters #10: We discuss beauty in genre with The Belles' Dhonielle Clayton

Feb 6, 2018, 11:11 AM EST

Friends, allies, podcast listeners: Lend us your ears, because it's time for another brand-new episode of our SYFY Fangrrls' Strong Female Characters podcast -- and we're ringing in our 10th installment with a subject that permeates all kinds of genre works: beauty.

This week, we're joined by author Dhonielle Clayton (whose new book, The Belles, is available starting right now!) to discuss beauty as a commodity, as well as how race and class define our beauty standards in genre and real life.


From rebellion leaders to scream queens and everything in between, women have shaped sci-fi and fantasy since its inception. Each week Fangrrls founder & managing editor Cher Martinetti and contributing editor and author Preeti Chhibber celebrate the countless badass women in geek culture through funny, witty, and unfiltered deep dives into the nerdverse.
