The dominating power of the state to control our thoughts, emotions, and sexuality has been the dominant concern of many women writers, and is reflective in some of the best dystopian literature of the modern age. We look at this critical topic and why we are at a crossroads. How are female protagonists presented in dystopia and what are some future trends? With Marge Piercy, Alice Sola Kim, Namwali Serpell, Basma Abdel Aziz and Jeff VanderMeer. Produced by Rattapallax magazine, ​New School Creative Writing, and New School Gender and Sexuality Studies,​ and supported through a grant from Humanities New York, Lower Manhattan Cultural Council, and the New York State Council on the Arts.
