Inspiring the City : Invisible Women: Discussion of the fetishisation of sex crime in crime novels

Wed 4 March
Chapel Allerton Library

Leeds Lit Fest presents

Inspiring the City is supported by Leeds Inspired part of Leeds City Council.

Authors Ali Harper and Danuta Kot discuss whether it is possible to write gripping crime novels that seek to empower women and subvert the sexual stereotypes? From the domestic thriller to chick noir, are women's roles within crime fiction expanding or will we always have to wrestle with the femme fatale and helpless victim caricatures?
