The Feminist Press

Website: http://www.feministpress.org/

The Feminist Press is an educational nonprofit organization founded to advance women's rights and amplify feminist perspectives. FP publishes classic and new writing from around the world, creates cutting-edge programs, and elevates silenced and marginalized voices in order to support personal transformation and social justice for all people.

Founded in 1970, we began as a crucial publishing component of second wave feminism, reprinting feminist classics by writers such as Zora Neale Hurston and Charlotte Perkins Gilman, and providing much-needed texts for the developing field of women’s studies with books by Barbara Ehrenreich and Grace Paley. We publish feminist literature from around the world, by best-selling authors such as Shahrnush Parsipur, Ruth Kluger, and Ama Ata Aidoo; and North American writers of diverse race and class experience, such as Paule Marshall and Rahna Reiko Rizzuto. We have become the vanguard for books on contemporary feminist issues of equality and gender identity, with authors as various as Anita Hill, Justin Vivian Bond, and Ann Jones.

Swastika Night

Katharine Burdekin

An outstanding example of dystopian fiction sometimes compared to 1984, Katherine Burdekin’s Swastika Night examines the world of male violence by weaving a tale of feudal Europe seven centuries into a post-Hitlerian society, “when men rule the world.” Burdekin published the novel under the pseudonym Murray Constantine. In it, she explores the connection between gender and political power and anticipates modern feminist fiction by drawing attention to the implications of conventional notions of masculinity and femininity.
