Lisa Yaszek, a professor in the Georgia Institute of Technology School of Literature, Media, and Communication, was recently quoted in a Chicago Tribune article entitled “What happened to all the women in science fiction?”

Here's an excerpt: 

Part of her research is on “recovery of lost voices in science fiction,” and in early 20th century, she said, there were around 300 female writers contributing to Weird Tales, Wonder Stories and other pulps. Keeping with conventions of the time, they were often at home with kids, writing between child care, or if they were teachers, writing while their students were hunched over classwork, Yaszek said.

The School of Literature, Media, and Communication is a unit of the Ivan Allen College of Liberal Arts.
