Lisa Yaszek, a professor in the Georgia Institute of Technology School of Literature, Media, and Communication, was written about in a Chicago Tribune article entitled “'The Future Is Female': New anthology collects sci-fi by women.”
Here's an excerpt:
When science fiction’s Hugo Awards were presented in August, all the fiction categories were won by women. But women weren’t always so celebrated. Lisa Yaszek’s fascinating and well-researched anthology presents a trove of writers who helped define the genre from the 1920s through the 1960s, some nearly forgotten today. While Yaszek has been careful to find stories that represent, for better or worse, the characteristic styles of each generation, she’s not focused specifically on feminism; her main theme is that female writers were always an influential part of the field.
