Daughters of a Coral Dawn


I thought this book was an excellent excursion into old-school lesbian feminist science fiction. First published in 1984, it imagines a world where a group of women have escaped an oppressive sexist government and created their own utopia on a distant planet. Then some men from their old world show up and they somehow have to deal with them. It is really well written and well thought out. Unfortunately, it is dated in that today, we are all about inclusivity, as opposed to separatism. However, I think it is an important novel from an historical perspective, and as we see today how women's right are slowly eroding, it still has some meaning for us.
