Subject: Feminist Novels

Along with the books that have been mentioned, I'd include the following.
Some are wider interpretations of feminist than you may be looking for, and
the first one is slightly off your time frame, but definitely fabulous
and 60s-inspired. Many, many are out of print (giving rise to the
argument that despite our postmodernism the task of feminist reclamation
of women's writings is still monumental).

The Cook & the Carpenter---June Arnold
Applesauce---June Arnold
Momma, A Start on all the Untold Stories---Alta
Diary of a Mad Housewife--Sue Kaufman (ending may be a problem)
IN Love & Trouble--(short stories)--Alice Walker
Memoirs of an Ex-Prom Queen--Alix Kates Shulman
Coming of Age in Mississippi--Anne Moody (autobiog.)
Tell Me a Riddle--Tillie Olsen
Nerves--Blanche Boyd
This is Not for You--Jane Rule
