Women in science fiction
Although women had always been represented among science fiction writers (Frankenstein by Mary Shelley has been called the first science fiction novel), it was not until the 1960s and 1970s that authors such as Ursula K. Le Guin and Joanna Russ began to consciously explore feminist themes in works such as The Left Hand of Darkness and The Female Man. WisCon, the world's only feminist science fiction convention and conference, is a four-day event held every Memorial Day weekend in Madison, Wisconsin.
