“Gentlemen, I just don’t belong here.”  – Usula Le Guin.

Ursula Le Guin - Gentelmen, I just don't belong here

“In 1987, multi-award winning author Ursula K LeGuin (sic) was asked to supply a blurb for Synergy: New Science Fiction, Volume 1, the first in a new four-part series of anthologies edited by George Zebrowski which intended to showcase science fiction stories from authors both established and up-and-coming. For her, however, the book was notable not for its stories but for its complete absence of women’s voices. She reacted with this stinging letter.”  –  The Guardian
