Here's what I wrote down from the gender roles panel. As you can see, we visited a lot of different parts of the genre, partially because our original moderator didn't make it and partially because the original description only mentioned science fiction and we wanted to broaden things a tad.

One addition: someone in the audience asked about sf/f with trans men as protagonists and we were stumped. Then I went home and looked in my bookcase and promptly found Supervillainz by Alicia Goranson, which has alternating viewpoint characters, both trans.

Okay, second addition. We, the panelists, talked about our current work in relation to the topic, more or less.
