Russ, Joanna. The Female Man. Boston: Beacon, 1975. New York: Bantam, 1975.

Includes JR's "An Old-Fashioned Girl" (q.v., this Category) and the utopian world of Whileaway: a world of appropriate technology, which is often appropriate high technology. (See Peter Fitting on "New Roles for Men in Recent Utopian Fiction," SFS #36, 12.2: 160.)

Note the "J" Jael, and the tradition of the warrior woman, which Ritch Calvin sees continued in Justina Robinson's Keeping It Real.
