The Worlds of Ursula K. Le Guin at the Northwest Film Forum

At The Magazine of Glamorous Refusal, we celebrate the courage it takes to set aside social norms and listen to your own voice. Ursula K. Le Guin was a pioneer of glamorous refusal, writing science fiction in a man's world, championing non-violent anarchism, and pushing feminism forward. Le Guin used her art to challenge the dominant power dynamic and change the conversation. She deliberately made the majority of her characters people of color and created matriarchal worlds led by strong women. If refusal is an essential and esteemed ingredient to a progressive world, Le Guin shows us art can be its vehicle. In her words, "any human power can be resisted and changed by human beings. Resistance and change often begin in art.” We are honored to provide an introduction at the screenings on January 30th & 31st and will have copies of Issue 01 available!
