Protaganists in SF and fantasy used to be primary male. Heinlein's juveniles, for example, although featuring a strong female secondary character (who arguably was the one who actually was the smarter and more able character) had male leads. This began to change in the late 1960s, with books like Rite of Passage, and now non-male protagonists are common. The panel looks at the trend, discusses its implications, and talks about some of their favorites.
