Very timely as I am just listening to Graceling as an audiobook!

I love so hard that seabane is part of Kristin Cashore's imagined world -- and the way that her world looks different because of it. That is, it doesn't exist as a plot convenience for a single character; her whole world looks a little different, and less sexist (though not magically, painlessly equal), because of its existence and widespread use. It hurts my heart to think how different our own world history would be if something resembling seabane existed and had been easily accessible to women for a significantly longer period of time than it actually has.

I agree with you.
