I just don’t blog about Sailor Moon, feminism and anime fandom–I speak about it too! I absolutely love creating presentations on these topics and I’m more than happy to channel this passion into the perfect Powerpoint/Keynote presentation. I’m comfortable commenting on the following topic areas:

  • Sailor Moon
  • Feminism
  • Living and working in Japan as an English teacher
  • Anime fandom since 1995

If your programming needs a feminist/moonie/lady perspective, drop me a line at shojo (dot) power (at) gmail (dot) com.

Here’s a list of panels that I’ve already created and presented. More are on the way!

Today feminist critique of anime is all over social media. However, what about feminism in Japan? This panel introduces key women in Japanese feminist history such as Raichō Hiratsuka, Beate Sirota Gordon, as well as artists such as Machiko Hasegawa and Rokudenashiko.
