The Female Man by Joanna Russ
One of the first openly gay writers in science fiction, Joanna Russ tells the story of four diverse characters in this classic novel: a 1970s feminist in our own reality, a librarian living in an alternate timeline where the Great Depression never ended, a woman from a future society inhabited only by other women and a strange female warrior on a planet where men and women are literally at war. As their stories intertwine, “The Female Man” cleverly explores gender identity, sexuality and the role of women in society.
