If you discovered the cure for sleep, would you tell the world?
Technology is transforming how we live, love, learn and earn - but only 19% of the people who create it are women.
This groundbreaking anthology features six leading female authors who reimagine fertility, productivity, dating and family life, and create visions of what emancipation and electronic freedom could look like. Commissioned by Doteveryone and NESTA, it poses the question: can different stories about the future make it easier for more women and girls to succeed as inventors, innovators and entrepreneurs?
My story, A DARKER WAVE is a tense, timely tale: near-future sleep science meets Macbeth. It tackles our obsession with 'solving' the cards nature has dealt us, and explores what happens to our culture and relationships when the tech world's ceaseless hunger for self-improvement starts to alter the most basic elements of human experience.
Edited by Tom Hunter of the Arthur C. Clarke Award, WOMEN INVENT THE FUTURE also features contributions from Anne Charnock, Becky Chambers, Cassandra Khaw, Liz Williams, Madeline Ashby and Walidah Imarisha.
