Why it Matters that Katniss is a Girl: The Hunger Games YA & Parent’s book discussion

With moderator Alicia Sowisdral
The Hunger Games’ Katniss Everdeen is a unique protagonist whose identity
resonates with boys and girls. While many critics have celebrated the gender-neutral
appeal of Katniss, we shouldn’t be too quick to disregard the importance of her gender.
Facilitated by feminist pop-culture blogger Alicia Sowisdral, this dialogue will explore
what Katniss means for our cultural understanding of gender and the female experience.
