Our podcast is about the roles women play in Science Fiction and how they are portrayed. We will be discussing Science Fiction film and literature through a feminist lens with a concentration on the women of color. We chose this topic because we are the only women in our class. Also after watching The Forbidden Planet, we shared strong thoughts on how “Alta” was being portrayed in the film. We hope to shed more light to the evolution of women through the years in science fiction, as characters and writers, and discuss further the roles these women played in their stories.
