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 21 folktales from different times and many countries. Included are blurbs about my identity and dispute with the narratives about the damsels who appeared in these traditional male-dominated dialogues written in literature and folklore from the 6th to 18th centuries.

Launch date is May 30, 2021.
