BritMandelo, August 18, 2012 (view all comments by BritMandelo)
This was a satisfying book on several levels: as an academic I was thrilled, and as a feminist I was thrilled, and as an SF nerd I was thrilled. (The book acknowledges but doesn't engage as much with queer feminisms, except in the closing "where we're at now" chapter, which also engages more with race and class than the other chapters.) All of the blind spots in the text are at least accounted for and acknowledged, and honestly, it's a very fulfilling read. The predominant focus of the text is on examining the real taxonomies and activities of SF feminists and feminisms from the beginning of the genre until now, with special attention to recognizing that women didn't just "show up" in SF in the sixties: we've always been there, and we've always been doing the job.

I'd heartily recommend this book.
