I started this project because I thought I knew a lot about women in science fiction. So much has been forgotten from my generation of writers which is something I want to redress. I also knew about the generations ahead of mine, going back to the mid-1960s, as well as the women of the 1930s.
Somehow, though, I skipped the women of the 1950s. Today, as I compiled my research, I came across this list. Three of the five nominees are women. One I hadn’t heard of before starting this project, and that’s Rosel George Brown.
