“She didn’t write it. She wrote it but she shouldn’t have. She wrote it, but look what she wrote about. She wrote it, but she only wrote one of it. She wrote it, but she isn’t really an artist and it isn’t really art. She wrote it, but she had help. She wrote it, but she’s an anomaly. She wrote it BUT…”

How to Suppress Women's Writing. Witty, easily readable, fiercely intelligent, and, unfortunately, still relevant.

To Write Like a Woman: Essays in Feminism and Science Fiction. I haven't read this, but I bet it's good. I've liked pretty much everything I've read of hers in criticism.

You can read one of Russ's most famous stories here, with an afterword: When It Changed. I never took to most of her fiction (her nonfiction is fantastic) but I love this story.

The Female Man. Strange, hard to describe (and for me, hard to follow) novel. It's not to my taste, but it's a classic and many people love it.
