One novelist has asked if women’s bodies could become deadly weapons, what would happen? There is a monument in Canada that is a tribute to all women who have been abused and murdered by men. This has been an inspiration for a novel by the name of The Power. The story is about women who find that they can deliver electric shocks with their bodies. This leads to a great upheaval across the world as far as gender goes.
- “The Power” is a novel about young women discovering they have the ability to use electricity from within their bodies.
- A book by Naomi Alderman looks at how the world would change if women suddenly had most of the power.
- Fiction can be used to study and consider real world power balances, and some authors offer stories to help with it.
“I was riveted by every page. Alderman’s prose is immersive and, well, electric, and I felt a closed circuit humming between the book and me as I read.”
