Strong Female Characters #20: Delilah Dawson and Annalise Ophelian discuss Star Wars and female-fronted fandom

May 4, 2018, 12:01 PM EDT

It feels especially fitting to ring in our 20th episode(!!!) of the Strong Female Characters podcast talking about a franchise that's so near and dear to our FANGRRL hearts.

For our very special Star Wars Day episode (on May the 4th, no less), we're sitting down to talk to two very special guests who love the galaxy far, far away as much as we do: filmmaker Annalise Ophelian, who's heading up the now-docuseries Looking for Leia, and author Delilah Dawson, who gets to live out our dreams by writing about all things Star Wars with books like Phasma and The Perfect Weapon.

Listen to the episode below!


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.
