Back in the heyday of second-wave feminism, or slightly thereafter (late '70s through the '80s), I went through a period of only buying sf and fantasy books written by women. (In those days it was almost a given cliche that "boys did sf and women did fantasy," which of course was hogwash, but still...) It was really rewarding to take a break from the constant "white male lead" sf/fantasy books I'd read as a teenager, and reinforced the idea in my head that much of it was (and still is, for all I know) fleshed-out fairy tales, which I adored as a girl and which are still by and large marketed to girls. (Superhero comics, which I also read and which my husband draws, also seem to stem from the same type of source.) I can't believe we're still having this kind of conversation thirty years later.
