THE REGENDER PROJECT

The Regender Project aims to demonstrate how imbalanced the genders have been represented in classic literature for centuries. By converting the genders of all the characters, and much of the terminology used, not only is the imbalance illustrated but many of the assumptions regarding gender roles and stereotypes are laid bare.

Leif Smart spent most of his life tinkering with technology, eventually turning it into a career, of sorts. At the back of his mind, however, he always dreamed about creating fantastical stories, set on far off planets or amongst mystical lands. When he finally grew tired of trying to fix the never ending computer problems of the world, he knew it was time to chase the dream. So, armed with a steady supply of skinny lattes and under the indifferent watch of his cat, Aeolyn, he set out to do just that.
