Also, check out the female science fiction writers of the era, such as
Joanna Russ, James Tiptree Jr. (Alice Sheldon), and Ursula LeGuin. The
1972 cut-off puts some of these writers' works out of range (e.g. Russ's
_The Female Man_, 1975), but not all. A favorite of mine is LeGuin's
_The Left Hand of Darkness_ (1969), which brings together issues of
gender, sexuality, nationalism, militarism, and spirituality in very
interesting ways. It teaches well, too.
