#GoodRead | Hugo Awards Celebrate Women in Sci-Fi, Send Rabid Puppies to Doghouse
The Hugo Awards proved once again that progress trumps nostalgia, as women, especially women of color, were the top winners of the night.
The winners were announced Saturday at MidAmeriCon II, held this year in Kansas City. Female writers, editors and artists took home seven individual awards. All four categories for works of fiction went to women, three of whom were women of color. That’s pretty amazing, considering 2007 only had one woman nominated for a work of fiction, and she didn’t win.
