I'm currently reading this book... So far, got to page 30 (yeah, okay I'm a slow reader)... Did someone once say that Ursula Le Guin is/was a bit of an ardant Feminist??? The only reason I ask, is that in those first 30 pages, there is a discussion between two men about women and worth - from two opposing sides... Do all her books have feminist over-tones??? Concentrating upon that as the theme, but setting it in a sci-fi context???
