Dodd, Anna Bowman

Tagged: Author

(1858-1929) US journalist and author whose anti-socialist sf novel, The Republic of the Future, or Socialism a Reality (1887 chap), set in New York in 2050 CE, offers a scathing and comical portrait of egalitarianism brought to the uttermost, resulting in a technologically advanced antlike Dystopia. The tale actively deprecates Feminism. [JC]
