Her Universe At SDCC!

Posted By Mandy on July 12, 2010

Who wants to smuggle me in their suitcase to San Diego Comic Con? I promise I will fold all of your laundry. ALL OF IT. Our good friend, Jimmy Mac, reported on the Her Universe, San Diego Comic Con panel earlier today!

####

One of the fastest growing demographics in the Science Fiction field today is the female audience. Thanks to an entertainment landscape which is growing more and more female-friendly, the foundation for fangirls in the Sci Fi/pop culture world is getting stronger every year and they are rapidly becoming a Force to be reckoned with.

Realizing this incredibly important and increasing segment of the Sci Fi/fantasy audience, Ashley Eckstein, the voice of Ahsoka Tano on the television series, Star Wars : The Clone Wars, has teamed up with The Araca Group, the production & merchandising company behind the Broadway sensation, Wicked, to launch Her Universe – a line of merchandise designed exclusively for female fans. Beginning with a license for Star Wars, Her Universe focuses on authentic and high-quality licensed Sci Fi/fantasy fashion apparel and merchandise.

Eckstein’s new endeavor, however, is not just about selling merchandise. She hopes to start a movement within the Sci Fi community to equally acknowledge the female fan base. Her first step will be coordinating and hosting a special panel at San Diego Comic-Con on Saturday, July 24th from 6:30pm to 7:30pm in Room 24ABC, entitled “Her Universe: Shining the Spotlight on Female Fans – the Past, Present and Future of Science Fiction Through Female Eyes.” This unique panel brings together some of today’s leading women who are movers and shakers in the various fields of Sci Fi and fantasy. The panel will discuss the influence of women working in the Sci Fi field, what kinds of entertainment female Sci Fi fans want to see more of, how to write fully-realized female Sci Fi characters, what has been missing up to now, and what female fans can do to encourage this growing movement.

This timely panel will bring together a dynamic group of women to discuss their experiences as well as a Q & A period with audience members. Join panelists Jane Espenson (Writer/Producer - Battlestar Galactica, Caprica, Buffy The Vampire Slayer, Firefly, Angel, Dollhouse/Co-Creator of Syfy’s Warehouse 13), Melinda Snodgrass (Author- The Edge series, Co-Author - Wild Card series/Story Editor Star Trek: The Next Generation), Erika Kennair (Director of Development - Syfy), Cat Staggs (Artist – Star Wars sketch cards, Marvel card sets, comic cover illustrator), Bonnie Burton (Content Developer Lucas Online, Official SW Blog, Founder of Grrl.com), Katie Cook (Artist – Star Wars, TOPPS sketch cards, comics, webcomic Gronk), and Mary Franklin (Senior Events Lead, Lucasfilm Ltd.).

You can learn more about Her Universe, the Her Universe Comic-Con panel and purchase product at the online store by going to www.heruniverse.com and by following Eckstein on Twitter at (https://twitter.com/HerUniverse) and visiting the Her Universe Facebook page at (http://www.facebook.com/HerUniverse).
