The Female Man

by Joanna Russ
Release date: 1975
Type: speculative fiction
Genres: science fictionanthropological sf

Nebula Award: Best Novel nominee (1975).

Living in an altered past that never saw the end of the Great Depression, Jeannine, a librarian, is waiting to be married. Joanna lives in a different version of reality: she's a 1970s feminist trying to succeed in a man's world. Janet is from Whileaway, a utopian earth where only women exist.

And Jael is a warrior with steel teeth and catlike retractable claws, from an earth with separate – and warring – female and male societies. When these four women meet, the results are startling, outrageous, and subversive.
