30 Dystopian Novels By and About Women: Critical Linking, November 17

Sponsored by The Austen Escape by Katherine Reay.


Of course, our current reality—in which a man accused of child molestation still has a good chance of being elected to the Senate, in which the American president is a racist who has said women should be punished for getting abortions and refuses to admit to the truth of climate change, among other things—is feeling more dystopic by the minute. So it feels to me like a particularly good time to be reading dystopian fiction by and about women—starting with Louise Erdrich, but not ending there. To that end, below you’ll find 30 dystopian, near-future, and post-apocalyptic novels by and about women.
