We who are about to...: FEMALE CHARACTERS IN SCIENCE FICTION REPRESENTING WOMEN’S STRUGGLE AGAINST MALE OPPRESSION

Abstract [en]

This essay uses feminist theory to examine whether the female narrator in Joanna Russ science fiction novel We who are about to… can be viewed as a personification of women’s struggle against an oppressive male society. The thesis of the essay is that the female narrator’s struggle against the male oppressors in the novel represents the struggle for women’s rights in Western society. The essay will also examine if teaching feminist theory and including women science fiction writers in the classroom will promote gender equality and thus fulfil the requirements of the Swedish curriculum.
