Damsels Overcome soon in bookstores

 

Both males and females are important in social norms. I'm making a case about the male narratives that dominate - take the fable Turtle and the Hare; all characters males. Masculine pronouns lock us into male narratives and male norms. 


DAMSELS OVERCOME has 22 folktales from different times and many countries. Included are burbs about my challenge with the damsels that appeared in these traditional male-dominated narratives written in literature and folklore 6th to 18th centuries.

Launch date is April 30, 2021.
