The Battle of the Sexes in Science Fiction is a lively story
of the role of women and feminism in the development of
American science fiction in its formative years of the mid-twentieth century.
Beginning in 1926 and moving through the 19905,
Justine Larbalestier examines science fiction’s engagement
with questions of femininity, masculinity, sex and sexuality
as it emerged in the stories, letters and articles in science fiction magazines and fanzines.
