Ignite Phoenix #12 - Women with Swords (or Blasters, or Stakes)
Presenter: Jana Knapp
Biography: Jana is an avid fan of geekdom, good books, and single malt scotch. Her hobbies all focus on connecting people who are doing awesome things with the larger community. A former nonprofit fundraiser, she now works in digital advertising and builds organizational infrastructure and processes. She's the mother of a sassy eight year old girl.
Description: She-Ra. Leia. Colonel Dearing. Buffy. My childhood and young adulthood were shaped by strong female characters that kicked butt and took names. No matter the situation, I had a role model for success. Where did they go? Girls today don't have the same kinds of characters to look up to. Or do they? Who are the new women with swords?
