Winner – Best Audio in the British Fantasy Awards 2019

Welcome to Breaking the Glass Slipper, a podcast celebrating women in genre.

We publish bi-monthly (every other Thursday) across all popular podcasting platforms.

The series was inspired by writer Juliet McKenna who commented on her blog about the many so-called ‘best of’ genre fiction lists that conspicuously lacked titles by women.

Breaking the Glass Slipper’s aims are straightforward

  • We want to get people talking about women, be they authors, readers or characters.
  • We want to look at gender narratives, the roles women adopt inside and outside genre fiction.
  • We want to celebrate great writing and bring less-publicised authors to a wider readership.

We invite everyone to listen, reflect and take part in the discussion. You can find all our episodes here. We’re always open to episode or guest suggestions so do get in touch if you have ideas to share.
