Abstract:

One woman resists the demands of her fellow stranded survivors on an inhospitable planet in this "elegant and electric ... tour-de-force" (Samuel R. Delany). In this stunning and boldly imagined novel, an explosion leaves the passengers of a starship marooned on a barren alien planet. Despite only a slim chance for survival, most of the strangers are determined to colonize their new home. But the civilization they hoped for rapidly descends into a harsh microcosm of a male-dominated society, with the females in the group relegated to the subservient position of baby-makers. One holdout wants to accept her fate realistically and prepare for death. But her desperate fellow survivors have no intention of honoring her individual right to choose. They're prepared to force her to submit to their plan for reproduction-which will prove to be a grave mistake ... In Hugo and Nebula Award-winning author Joanna Russ's trailblazing body of work, "her genius flows and convinces, shames and alarms" (The Washington Post).
