Today is International Women’s Day. Today, we commemorate the movement for women’s rights and bring awareness to the ongoing struggle for those rights – globally, nationally, personally.
Cat is honored to raise her voice as a part of Tor.com’s Nevertheless She Persisted anthology, an online series of flashfiction written by some of the best writers today in SF/F. Here’s what Tor.com had to say:
“Nevertheless She Persisted” has become a galvanizing cry for people of all genders in recognition of the struggles that women have faced throughout history.
This sci-fi/fantasy flash fiction collection features sharing unique visions of women inventing, playing, loving, surviving, and – of course – dreaming of themselves beyond their circumstances.
In this amazing collection, you will find “The Ordinary Woman and the Unquiet Emperor” by Catherynne M. Valente – and maybe too much reality for comfort. Discomfort is okay. Discomfort reminds us to fight.
Read it now, and then read all the other marvelous tales from Seanan McGuire, Alyssa Wong, Amal El-Mohtar, Nisi Shawl, and more.
