Why are popular movie and television rebellions so often fronted by cis-gendered white women? The Hunger Games. Rogue One. The 100. Why is only one aspect of diversity allowed for our leads? In this panel we will discuss and challenge historical contexts, mantras of white feminism, tropes used to balance diversity, and what we can do as creators and consumers to mitigate it.
