Month: March + April, 2020 Theme: Early Female Authors The Female Man by Joanna Russ We are given four versions of what might be the same woman — Joanna, Jeannine, Janet, and Jael — each in a world that contains different roles and opportunities for women.

And if none are right, how can they invent a better way?
