Heroic Girls Presents: Rescuing the Princess

Sunday 10 a.m. – 11 a.m.

An all-star panel of modern princess experts, including Trina Robbins (Wonder Woman), Jeremy Whitley (Princeless), Sarah Graley (Glitch) and feminist writer Joanna Schroeder, discusses how the concept of “princess” has been subverted and repurposed in the modern era to empower girls, rather than limiting their horizons. Moderated by John Marcotte (Heroic Girls). Room: Grand 12, Marriott Marquis San Diego Marina
