Poetry. In 1405; Christine de Pizan; the world's first professional writer; published an allegorical work called The Book of the City of Ladies; in which she imagined constructing (with the help of her fairy godmothers Reason; Rectitude; and Justice) a walled city where women could live safe from sexism; misogyny; and gendered violence. Six hundred years later; we still need such a city. MEGA-CITY REDUX charts a road-trip search for this mythical city today; with the help of 21st-century feminist heroes Buffy the Vampire Slayer; Xena Warrior Princess; and Dana Scully from The X-Files.
