Her Universe is more than just a merchandise line to me. I came up with the name Her Universe because I wanted it to become a community for female fans, a Universe just for, Her. I was never a sister in a sorority, but almost like a sorority for female sci-fi fans. We could call ourselves, “Sisters of the Force.” (We could even have a secret hand shake) lol… Okay, I know that sounds super cheesy, but there are so many girls who bond over their love of Star Wars or Lord of the Rings or Ghost Hunters. Well, my mission is to find all of those girls and make them aware of Her Universe. We’ve never really been accepted in this genre and why not? How do we change that?
Well, we are not going to change the misperception that sci-fi is just for the boys overnight. First of all, we are power in numbers. United we stand, divided we fall. If we all come together, our voice will be so powerful. For what? Better merchandise. This merchandise is just the beginning. I have a LONG list of cool things I would love to make, but we have to prove that girls will buy sci-fi merchandise. If we can prove that, then we will be able to make so much more! Better female characters. There is such a lack of strong female characters and if we band together, we may begin to play a bigger role in the creative choices they make for our favorite stories or new stories.
These are just a few thoughts I had, but I wanted to let you in on my vision. I hope you will help me spread the word about Her Universe. If you could make the sci-fi world a little more female friendly, what would you change? What would you like to see happen?
May The Force Be With Us!
