Global Women in SF. An important discussion.

Lavie Tidhar invited me to participate in a roundtable discussion with Aliette de Bodard (France), Joyce Chng (Singapore), Csilla Kleinheincz (Hungary), Kate Elliott (US), and Ekaterina Sedia (Russia/US).

The result is here: (Global) Women in Science Fiction Round Table. I think it’s a very important addition to the discussion about women writers in SF, not only because gender issues vary widely across the globe (and therefore SF may not be seen as a boy’s game in some cultures), but also because for some of us being a foreign writer is as much (or more) of an obstacle to being published in SF as being a woman writer. Please go read and comment.
