Gwyneth Jones


In this review of Suzy Charnas’s Holdfast Chronicles trilogy, Jones analyses the treatment of male and female gender roles and explores the significance and consequences of a female utopia with a total absence of men. Jones references social engineering and power dynamics in all books in the trilogy: Walk to the End of the World, Motherlines, and The Furies.
