Ashley Eckstein To Attend GeekGirlCon '12

Posted By Mike on July 24, 2012

Ahsoka Tano herself, and Her Universe founder, Ashley Eckstein is the latest guest to be added to the list for this year's GeekGirlCon on August 11 and 12 in Seattle, Washington. Beyond making an appearance, Ashley will also be taking part in a panel on Saturday of the convention discussing female characters in Star Wars. Catherine Taber (Padme in TCW) and Suvudu's Tricia Barr will be taking part in the panel as well. Here's the panel description:

12:30 PM ? 1:20 PM

From Jedi Princess to Sith Witch: An Exploration of Female Characters in Star Wars ? RM204

Padm? Amidala and Leia Organa are icons in discussions about female characters in science fiction. Panelists will delve into the representations of females in the Expanded Universe and the recurring theme of the Jedi Princess. As a counterbalance, the Sith witches transcend the stereotypical caricatures often found in fairy tales and the ?ordinary? female characters such as bounty hunters, intelligence agents, smugglers, and fighter pilots that capture our imagination without mystical powers.

Presented by Linda Hansen-Raj, Joanne Perrault, Consetta Parker, Catherine Taber, Tricia Barr, Joao Stinson
