Meet Catherine Connors
A writer and social theory scholar whose academic work looked at storytelling as a force for shifting cultural perspectives on women and girls. Catherine was a pioneer in the first big wave of women’s online storytelling, with her award-winning blog Her Bad Mother, (named one of TIME Magazine's 25 Best Blogs in 2012). She went on to become Editor in Chief and Head of Content for The Walt Disney Company’s interactive division, overseeing its entire online portfolio and stewarding a community of leading digital storytellers. She has personally mentored dozens of practicing and aspiring writers, and stewarded the storytelling of showrunners, screenwriters, graphic novelists, memoirists, and scholars. The co-author of the critically acclaimed The Feminine Revolution, Catherine’s upcoming publications and works-in-progress include Citizen Princess: Femininity, Leadership, and the Cultural Politics of Gender, a children’s television script, and a YA novel.
