Introducing: The Female Gaze

… or Why we need more women writers that are open and honest in shifting POVs.

I was planning a blog post for this Monday, as usual, but the topic’s research grew out of hand and I’ll have to split it up and do at least two posts. I will further narrow the topic down, but it all sums up as the revolutionary:

The Female Gaze

… in love scenes, romance, romantic stories/scenes, and esp. historical fiction (my genre so far).

I will talk about the idea in more detail, but Carol McGrath triggered something that stuck with me for some time:

And she is right and just as right is Eremi Amabebe, when she cleverly analysed in a comment here:

“There are so many myths out there about female sexuality — we need more ladies to go forth and illuminate!”

Basically, the Female Gaze will be about aspects of that: writing about love and sex and emotions, the turmoil that comes with it and why we DO need a female gaze and women’s voices (and eyes, of course ;-))!

I look forward to that.

Have a great week, reader and writer friends, and expect the first post by next Sunday or Monday. Happy writing/reading!
