LadiesCon is a yearly convention in Somerville, MA that focuses on comics and other media created by women. It's held by Ladies of Comicazi, a group associated with the Davis Square comic book store of the same name. This year’s convention is in-person on Saturday May 20, 11am-5pm at the Somerville Armory.
I'm really looking forward to going to it as both an attendee and a panelist:

From Mary Shelley's Frankenstein to the mother monster in Alien (1979), women and monsters share a long history across science fiction media. Monsters often terrorize women in slasher films, seduce them in fantasy romances, or even ARE women. Our team of creators, writers, and creature enthusiasts will discuss their favorite beautiful beasts and what can make monsters of us all.
