Feminism USA 1984 Heinlein, Robert A. Job: A Comedy of Justice. New York: Ballantine (1984); pg. 129. "Another matter that comes up regularly at each annual prayer meeting I did not favor spending time or money on: 'Votes for Women.' These hysterical females styling themselves 'suffragettes' are not a threat, can never win, and it just makes them feel self-important to pay attention to them. They should not be jailed and should not be displayed in stocks-never let them by martyrs! Ignore them. "
Feminism USA 1987 Willis, Connie. "Ado " in Impossible Things. New York: Bantam (1994; story copyright 1988); pg. 113. [Author's introduction.] "I wrote 'Ado' when political correctness was still just a gleam in some activist's eye... In the years since, productions of The Taming of the Shrew have been picketed by feminists... and the Nancy Drew books have been removed from the Boulder Public Library on the grounds that they are sexist and racist... And a few months ago Penn State ruled that a print of Goya's The Naked Maja constituted sexual harassment in the classroom. "
Feminism USA 1991 Ing, Dean. The Nemesis Mission. New York: Tor (1991); pg. 29. "Bill Sheppard knew better: Colleen Morrison had implied that handsome young Jared Cutter could be bolder. So much for the radical feminist theory, Sheppard chided himself. "
Feminism USA 1992 Morrow, James. Only Begotten Daughter. New York: William Morrow & Co. (1990); pg. 115. "...Anyway, Jack has made me pregnant again because we're not allowed to believe in birth control, and I want to be dead. If I get an abortion, will I burn in hell? Forever? My parents are good Catholics, so they'll kill me if I do this... --MISERABLE IN CHEYENNE

DEAR MISERABLE: As you imagine, I am very torn on the abortion question. Freedom of choice? Let's remember that our choices normally begin in the bedroom, not the abortion clinic. Let's remember all those prime candidates for abortion who, reprieved at the last minute, went on to lead extraordinary and valuable lives. " [More, not in DB.]

Feminism USA 1993 Simmons, Dan. The Hollow Man. New York: Bantam (1993); pg. 182. "Gail never hesitates to use 'man' to stand for 'people' or 'humankind.' She always says that she values clarity more than the feminist imperative. "
Feminism USA 1995 Chalker, Jack L. The Cybernetic Walrus (Book One of The Wonderland Gambit). New York: Ballantine (1995); pg. 25. "No, we weren't married, and, not, it wasn't my choice, it was hers. I never quite got it straight whether it was because she was Catholic and took this seriously as a one-time thing... or more a matter of old feminist principles or just nerves, but I never pushed it. "
Feminism USA 1996 Swanwick, Michael. "Covenant of Souls " in Omni Visions One (Ellen Datlow, ed). Greensboro, NC: Omni Books (1993; story copyright 1986); pg. 173. "Peter listened and nodded and answered questions and constructed the month's complain list:
1. Heat! (leak under saristy--fix?)
2. Mice...
3. Light bulbs...
4. Toilet paper (tell Sam)
5. Building Security...
6. Dupe key for WomensRights

Mrs. Untiedt, of WomensRights--a relatively successful organization that rented the entire basement floor of the old manse and mostly used the door directly out through the nursery school yard--asked why they hadn't gotten their doorbell fixed work. "

Feminism, continued
