Lisa Yaszek, a professor in the Georgia Institute of Technology School of Literature, Media, and Communication, was recently quoted in a Marie Claire article entitled “The Best Sci Fi Movies of 2018 That Starred Women.”
Here's an excerpt:
In a recent anthology, edited by Lisa Yaszek and called The Future is Female!, 25 science fiction stories written by women between 1920 and 1969 imagine worlds very different from our own. What those worlds look like—be they cyborg-centric, egalitarian, or dystopian—varies, from a 1930s pulp tale by C.L. Moore to a piece by the late, great Ursula K. LeGuin penned at the end of the 60s. It’s an impressive and super fun-to-read collection that’s well worth picking up, and what it will leave you with (other than the notion that the future ain’t what it used to be) is the sense that women have always been into sci-fi—and they’ve been good at it.
