Worldbuilding Gender Roles
Your Hosts: Brandon, Mary Robinette, Margaret, and Howard
Let’s talk about worldbuilding with gender roles. Most of us have grown up with a very strongly defined binary, that distinction need not be how we craft the worlds in which we set our stories. In this episode we discuss the resources we have to help us, and the approaches we’ve taken to worldbuild with gender in our own work. We drill down pretty deeply on some worldbuilding with Brandon, and yes, we run quite long.
Credits: This episode was recorded by Dan Thompson, and mastered by Alex Jackson
Homework: Apply the axes of power deliberately to character gender, and determine how gender and gender identity affects the various axes.
