Obviously she has chosen stories of a particular type to illustrate what she is on about, given the absence of early writers Catherine Moore and Leigh Brackett and including MacLean, the former being obviously superior talents to the Bradleys, Dormans and Dows etc. as far as short stories go. She does mention them though, but dismisses Brackett as too macho for her, basically, and pointing out more interest in 70s era writers and ongoing as far as her topic is concerned.
This is from the 70s, of course, so people reading this now may see it as belaboring the point rather obviously.
That aside, overall a good anthology, with a few lightweight stories alongside the top class Russ and McIntyre pieces, or Wilhelm.
