"So what's this convention all about?"
To preface: the opinions here are expressed by me and my like-minded friends who are fans.
If you walk into a crowd at any Supernatural convention, chances are a good portion of said crowd will be female-presenting. But while the audience at conventions is primarily made up of women, there is a lack of female talent at conventions and the portrayal of women on the show remains problematic. Fellow fans who desire the opportunity to interact with our favorite female characters are driven to set a plan in motion that calls for change. We want to meet our "Ladies of SPN," but don't have enough opportunity to do so.We want to have a conversation about the roles of women on SPN and support female characters in hopes that they can find their way to stronger and longer story lines. We all desire positive change in the media as a whole. This is a change we hope "Ladies of SPN" can garner.
We love watching SPN, but many of us pine for more female driven storylines and ideas. Rarely are we given a female character with a recurring role who survived a single episode. We want female hunters that have taken up their jobs because they wanted to and had been interested in it. We want male side characters that would be equal to them instead of bumbling idiots that made the female leads look competent through their own failings. We want female character development instead of repeated cycling through same-ole-same-ole issues, without unnecessary drama and suffering All of which is well within our SPN Family's reach, but only if we unite and call for change.
That's basically the spark behind "Ladies of SPN Con." We want the opportunity to talk to all these amazing female actresses: to ask them about their characters, why they chose to play them, how they approached the roles, how they felt about the way the characters ended up, what they hoped to accomplish. Going even further, I found myself wanting to ask questions of the female crew involved with the show as well: what brought them into Supernatural, what kept them there, what they loved about their roles in making the show come alive on screen, what they hoped would improve. In short, we wanted to open a dialogue, not only with the cast and crew of the show we've spent the last 10 years fully engrossed in, but with the fan community as a whole. We wanted to give people the opportunity they so obviously craved.
Let's all unite to take this idea and see it flourish. Our favorite female actresses and industry ladies need our support! Tweet about it, tumble about it, tell your facebook friends and your coworkers!
And to quote Kim Manners: let's kick it in the ass, shall we?
