Annotation

Sequel to 1974 Charnas where Alldera, the woman who escaped from the Holdfast, discovers, first, the Horsewomen, and later the Free Fems. Both might be called flawed feminist utopias because while they are clearly much better than the slavery of the Holdfast, each has serious internal conflicts and problems, and, while they trade, they are deeply opposed to each other. See also 1994, and 1999 Charnas.
