One panelist talked about the feminine type, where the heroine moves from enclosed and confined to freedom. Whether she starts out metaphorically up the tower or trapped in a labyrinth. They were certain this was a feminine trait. (I was thinking of Andre Norton. That's as much the story as Catseye as of Ice Crown. Also, in Dread Companion, it's the woman who ends up in the land of the evil bad people, and the man there who knows what she needs to know to get out, in a reversal of the old tale "the girl helps the hero flee.")
This one, alas, did not stick much in memory.
