General Organa, Rey, Jyn... these are all lead characters in the male-dominated Star Wars Franchise. Our panelists look at the good and bad of female representation given the various contexts of the era they were made, the political circumstances at the time and the movies themselves. We also look at the actresses who bring the characters to life and how the universe impacts on their lives as actors and as women in the public sphere.
