The Female Man - Joanna Russ The most famous of all feminist Science Fiction novels and justifiably so. The same woman seems to be living in multiple timelines. In one world men and women are at war. In another all men have been wiped out by a plague and the surviving women live in a peaceful paradise. Russ' point seems to be that if women want to compete with men on an equal footing they need to abandon girlishness and become female men. Thomas Disch once wrote that the difference between Ursala K. Le Guin and Russ' feminism is that Le Guin wants to disarm the men while Russ wants to arm the women. I am all for a fair fight, so I will side with Russ' approach in this instance.
