Feminism and Science Fiction

Rate this:
The title comes from a line of dialogue in 'The Women Men Don't See', a short story by the late great James Tiptree, Jr. (aka Alice Sheldon and Raccoona Sheldon): 'What women do is survive. We live by ones and twos in the chinks of your world-machine.' So you thought science fiction was a boys' own zone? Think again! In this classic work of science fiction criticism - winner, when it was first published, of a prestigious MLA award - Sarah LeFanu looks at the work of a whole range of science fiction writers and explores the fusion of a feminist political worldview with the myriad possibilities of science fictional otherworlds. With individual chapters on the work of Suzy McKee Charnas, Ursula Le Guin, Joanna Russ, and Tiptree herself, and a new preface from the author.
