"This gem of an anthology compiles the history of utopian and dystopian - and, not coincidentally, feminist and antifeminist - Western philosophy rooted in Plato and Charlotte Perkins Gilman, John Stuart Mill, and Nel Noddings, then provides a body of diverse work to illustrate the realization of philosophy through literature....Casual readers, feminist scholars, and teachers...will welcome this book; recommended."
"Little's anthology offers an array of classic and recent feminist science fiction short stories by both women and men that explores...the tragedies and comedies of gendered experience....I've already ordered this anthology for...'Literature by Women - Science Fiction.'"
JANE DONAWERTH, Professor of English
