Three very different dystopias center women in their dystopic—yet often funny—depictions of the near future. In Aminder Dhaliwal’s hilarious graphic novel Woman World, a birth defect has made men extinct, and a group of women grapple with problems old and new as they mourn the past while creating a new future. A fever has taken the majority of the population in Ling Ma’s horror-satire Severance, a millennial office worker navigates a post-apocalyptic New York City before joining a group of survivors making their way to a promised land. Leni Zumas connects the five women in the small Oregon coastal town of Red Clocks find themselves in a world where abortion is illegal and embryos have more rights than women. Moderated by Lidia Yuknavitch, author of The Book of Joan.
