This is a general request for help in choosing a text for a feminist philosophy course.
At the request of one of my students I would like to add a novel (novella or short story would also be fine) to my syllabus. My student suggested The Handmaid’s Tale, but my preference would be to add something (1) more contemporary or (2) something that considers gender as it intersects with race and/or disability. I have a couple of ideas, but would appreciate more suggestions as I am sure there are great things I’m overlooking. For reference, this is an introductory level undergraduate course open to students who may not have had any previous exposure to either philosophy or women/gender studies.
Thanks for your help!
