Since all the cool kids are doing it--Wiscon Program Schedule

The Feminist Ideal and the Warrior Woman
(Feminism, Sex, and Gender)
Friday, 10:15-11:30 p.m. in Assembly

Is there a contradiction between the ideals of feminism and the common fictional image of a warrior woman? Do we need fighting females in SF, and if so, why, and of what sort?
M: Gregory G Rihn, Nancy Jane Moore, Elizabeth Bear

Women and the Draft (Feminism, Sex, and Gender)
Saturday, 4:00-5:15 p.m. in Conference Room 5

Women are currently barred from serving in the US Armed Forces in a Combat Zone as a Combatant. Women are also not required to register for the US Draft (this may change in the coming year). How well does Science Fiction portray women in combat? Is that a future that we want? Come to the panel and let us know.
Nonie B. Rider, M: Debbie Notkin, Nancy Jane Moore, David B Haseman, Elizabeth Bear

Where is Grandma's Story? (Reading SF/F)
Sunday, 10:00-11:15 a.m. in Assembly

She brings home most of the food in traditional societies, but where in fiction does she get to act, not just advise?
M: Georgie L. Schnobrich, M. J. Hardman, Janice M. Eisen, Elizabeth Bear

And the sign-out, too.

Any suggestions on grandmothers in SFF welcome; I'm trying to work up a list.
