As hard and mean and fine as Flannery O'Connor. . . . I wish that everyone would read Joanna Russ' books. -Dorothy Allison, author of Bastard Out of Carolina
"Joanna Russ offers a gallery of some of the most interesting female protagonists in current fiction, women who are rarely victims and sometimes even victors, but always engaged sharply and perceptively with their fate." -Marge Piercy
"A stunning book, a work to be read with great respect. It's also screamingly funny." -Elizabeth Lynn, San Francisco Review of Books
"A work of frightening power, but it is also a work of great fictional subtlety. . . . It should appeal to all intelligent people who look for exciting ideation, crackling dialogue, provocative fictional games-playing in their reading." -Douglas Barbour, Toronto Star

"The Female Man" though written years ago, is still a very valid illustration of sexism in our society. It creates a new way to view ourselves. Most men can even understand it's points. It's humor and it's subtle inuendo make for great reading, too.
Joanna Russ speaks for all strong Women, who are willing to confront their situations, with a can do attitude.
Sexism is alive and well in America. You don't have to go to a country where Women have zero rights to see the inequities.
This book should be required reading for all Psychology, Sociology, and Civil Rights courses of study.
Buy it. Read it. You'll wind up looking for more books from Ms. Russ.
