One thought on “A Woman's Liberation: A Choice of Futures by and About Women

  1. Faith Justice

    I read and reviewed this book in 2002 for the website Strange Horizons I obviously loved it Here s the beginning of the review A link to the whole thing is below I grew up during the sixties and seventies, yearning to see my female self reflected in the world around me in history, business, government, and literature Those were heady days as women reclaimed their past, forged ahead in careers, and asserted their rights But it was a struggle I fortified myself with science fiction, stories that p [...]

  2. Punk

    SF, edited by Connie Willis and Sheila Williams This right here is a rare thing It s a good collection of short stories I didn t love every story, but they all have something worthwhile in them, and the overall quality of the writing is quite high It could hardly be anything else with these contributers Nancy Kress Inertia a leper colony might be the safest place to be during a time of extended social unrest and a world living under martial law Connie Willis Even the Queen was easily my favorite [...]

  3. Kathleen O'Nan

    While this volume was published quite a while ago 2001 , it was new and fresh to me Having read all the women s science fiction that I could get my hands on, starting back in the early 70 s, this felt like old home week I especially liked the title piece by Ursula K Le Guin This final piece seems particularly timely as the actual Underground Railroad is being looked at again with a wealth of rediscovered information in both the media see particularly the September 2016 issue of Smithsonian Magaz [...]

  4. Christy

    This anthology is a bit of a mixed bag There are a few classic stories that perhaps didn t need to be anthologized here in addition to all the other places I ve come across them e.g Pat Murphy s Rachel in Love, Vonda McIntyre s Of Mist, and Grass, and Sand, and Octavia Butler s Speech Sounds I actually like those three stories, but I was hoping for new to me women s science fiction.Of the rest of the stories, there are four that were just okay if that and three that ranged from really quite goo [...]

  5. Sarah

    This is a really lovely little collection of women s science fiction By women s science fiction I of course mean SciFi written by women It s perfect for me, the little geek who goes to a women s college But it s also an excellent anthology of science fiction, spanning the genre from post apocalypse, height of technology, freaky disease, and completely without context Things handling social problems we have today, social problems that have existed in the past, and social problems we can only imag [...]

  6. Nicole Bunge

    Ten stories from Asimov s and Analog magazine including some giants of feminist speculative fiction.Some are short stories set in existing worlds, some are stand alone.The title story which is a novella resonated a lot for me, as did Rachel in Love and Speech Sounds Most are pretty heavy reading addressing the issues of sexism racism humanity with the exception of Even the Queen which is just silly Contents are Intertia Nancy KressEven the Queen Connie WillisFool s Errand Sarah ZettelRachel in [...]

  7. Kaethe

    Excellent collection of SF by women, covering a pretty broad span of styles, tones, and topics Just a really good read, and a perfect suggestion for anyone who s looking for some of the most honored, if not neccesarily best known writers in the genre Just to be clear, LeGuin, Butler, Willis, et alia, these are not obscure names, except to a reader quite new in the genre And I know I was praising it just the other day, but Even the Queen is also in this collection, and damn, but that s a funny st [...]

  8. Meg

    Awesome anthology including some classic stories that I enjoyed rereading like Ursula LeGuin s A Woman s Liberation, and Vonda McIntyre s Of Mist, and Grass, and Sand as well as some that I hadn t read before and loved, like Nancy Kress s Inertia and Octavia Butler s Speech Sounds The stories took place in a wide variety of settings, and though all the stories had women as protagonists, some of them explicitly addressed women s or feminist issues, while others did not Basically, there wasn t a w [...]

  9. Ab

    A great collection of sci fi short stories about women, by women which is REALLY difficult to find in a book even now This collection has all kinds of stories, from the alien other planet stuff to future on earth after some epidemic etc Ursula K LeGuin s story at the end, titled A Women s Liberation is probably one of the best stories in the collection and is probably of a novella than a story , and makes me want to read of her writing.

  10. Anne

    A solid book of science fiction written by women about women I don t think there is a real clunker in the whole collection The weakest, in my opinion, were Vonda N McIntyre s Of Mist, and Grass, and Sand and Sarah Zettel s Fool s Errand They weren t bad, I just didn t find them as compelling as some of the others I d read most of the authors before, but did find a couple Connie Willis and S.N Dyer that made me want to seek out of their work.

  11. Lindig

    A nice anthology of sf by women authors only The only two I d read before were the Vonda McIntyre and the Anne McCaffrey I especially liked the Octavia Butler, about a plague that has robbed people of speech and the Ursula Le Guin, about slavery and revolution and women s roles in them The only one I didn t like was the Pat Murphy story, Rachel in Love It s a nice collection that offers something for everyone and ranges from pure silliness meh to hard sf.

  12. Sarah

    The stories were good but what has stuck with me is the Ursula K LeGuin It has lodged itself into my brain It felt exciting and necessary to read it That doesn t happen all that often Her writing on slavery over the last decade has been powerful But then I ve felt that way about her writing since I was a child.

  13. Summer

    I wanted to like this than I did, as I love Connie Willis and several of the stories in this collection are excellent However, several of the stories were just plain boring, so it s rather a mixed bag.Things I don t want to read again That damned Vonda McIntyre story about the healer and her snakes Anything by Anne McCaffrey

  14. Penny

    This book caught my eye as I was doing some database clean up Women and SF A somewhat unusual combination And since I was looking for something to read I grabbed it The stories have all been good How good Good enough to make you regret seeing it end Good enough to make one wonder what else this author has written.

  15. Deborah Replogle

    A collection of stories of acclaimed women Science Fiction authors, most of them written way back when I first discovered Science Fiction I loved re reading them All of them wonderful stories, but two favorites Even the Queen by Connie Willis, and A Women s Liberation by Ursula LeGuin This is a book that should be on every Science Fiction reader s bookshelf.

  16. SuperCat

    The stories in this book are pretty much super I especially liked the Connie Willis one But even than that, I have a lot of new authors to check out Thanks to lemoncakes for the rec.

  17. Mckinley

    Liked almost all of these short stories I d read many of the authors before Will follow up on a couple and read by all.
