If you have been checking this blog you may know by now that I have an interest in romance where the woman (by a small or large margin) is more dominant than her partner. I started a yahoogroup for writers in this area called Hear Me Roar. With Laura Bacchi's help we will soon have a reading list online and I really want to help develop this area as a recognised sub-genre.
But for this to happen I think the sub-genre needs a name, some less BDSM-specific than Femdom. Suggestions that we have floated include: Fem-strong, AlphaFem, Alphem, Female-Alpha.... I want the name to immediately conjur or the image of a woman in charge, but not immediately leap as far as a dominatrix with a boot-licking slave. So if you have any ideas for a catchy and immediately understandable name for romance about dominant women please, please share it!
[28 Feb] Perhaps I could give up on the name and just use a symbol :)
