    ... are apt examples of this topic.

    One may begin with The Female Man by Russ, but don't stop there -- fabulous author!

    They are both from LeGuin's "generation" of SF writers.

    I remember a line from one of her essays (paraphrased) -- " ... I was concerned, and investigated. I write more than Science Fiction , but I'm also a Science Fiction writer..."
