Ten stories from Asimov's and Analog magazine- including some giants of feminist speculative fiction.
Some are short stories set in existing worlds, some are stand alone.

The title story (which is more a novella) resonated a lot for me, as did "Rachel in Love" and "Speech Sounds." Most are pretty "heavy" reading: addressing the issues of sexism/racism/humanity (with the exception of "Even the Queen" - which is just silly.)

Contents are:

Intertia - Nancy Kress
Even the Queen - Connie Willis
Fool's Errand - Sarah Zettel
Rachel in Love -Pat Murphy
Of Mist, Grass, and Sand - Vonda N. McIntyre
The July Ward - S. N. Dyer
The Kidnapping of Baroness 5 - Katherine MacLean
Speech Sounds - Octavia E. Butler
The Ship Who Mourned - Anne McCaffrey
A Woman's Liberation - Usula K. Le Guin
