Bestseller Kindle The Gate to Women's Country One reviewer on Goodreads calls The Gate to Women's Country "gender essentialist, heterosexist, cissexist garbage," and it is, I suppose. First published in 1988, The Gate to Women's Country is very second-wave feminist and exhibits many of the problems one would expect from that description. It's also beautiful and sad and, while exclusionary, an otherwise excellent and enjoyable treatment of the issues that it did deal with.The Gate to Women's Country examines an (honestly not-so-unlikely) hypothetical future in which a world ruled by men ended in an apocalypse that wrecked the planet and almost killed everyone. In the aftermath of disaster, women and women-supporting men took over, with a plan of breeding the violence out of humanity. The central question of the novel is dependent on the premise that this goal can possibly attained and it is, simply, "Is it worth it?" Tepper explores the ways in which the Women's Country plan makes life harder for the people who live there as well as the ways in which a plan that is intended to create a better humanity can be itself dehumanizing for nearly everyone involved.Even though, by the end of the novel, we can see evidence of the success of the plan, we're still left wondering if being able to do something makes it right to actually do it. Does the end justify the means, or do we lose our humanity on the road to trying to save it?
