Writing the Historical Female in the #MeToo Era

What does it mean, in any era, for a woman to raise her voice and demand to be heard? This question has never been more important for authors of historical novels than in today’s #MeToo moment. Join panelists Heather Webb, Lynda Loigman, Kris Waldherr, and Sally Koslow, who have written in a vast range of eras from the French Revolution to the Victorian era, to the twentieth century, as they discuss craft tips, research considerations, challenges, and opportunities in writing stories that center women, explore the female perspective, and give voice to heroines using their own documented words.
