An Important Essay, and Recommending Partners of Wonder

“The Women Other Women Don’t See.”

I’ll be interested to read the sf research tome Partners of Wonder, which I hadn’t seen much about before. The author contends that women in sf were always doing plenty, but that their achievements have been forgotten and denigrated by… later women in sf!

This is of course not always true; but it’s true that there’s a lot less feminist love for sf romances in early pulp than for sf and fantasy buttkicking stories by women. (And to a certain extent this is natural; a lesbian isn’t necessarily going to want to read a romance between heterosexual people, and a lot of 70’s feminist sf theorists were lesbians.)
