Winslow, Helen M

Entry updated 12 September 2022. Tagged: Author.

(1851-1938) US author, much of whose work advocates a moderate Feminism in which the central focus seems to be on equality of opportunity between the sexes, as in the nonfantastic A Woman for Mayor: A Novel of To-Day (1909), whose victorious female mayor is much interested in hygiene, and has the city scrubbed clean. Of sf interest is the Near Future Salome Shepard, Reformer (1893), the eponymous protagonist of which, who happens to be a factory owner, is inspired to create a Utopia with evenhanded justice (and job opportunities) for both sexes, with both libraries and dancing halls. Winslow seems best known today, sadly, for a cat book, Concerning Cats: My Own and Some Others (1900). [JC]
