HALL, Sandi


HALL, Sandi
(1942-)
   UK-born writer, journalist and feminist activist, resident variously in Canada, Zambia, NEW ZEALAND, Australia, the USA and Mexico. In New Zealand she belonged to the "Broadsheet" collective, founded the NZWomen's Party, and publicly announced her lesbianism. In the NEAR FUTURE The Godmothers (1982 UK), her first novel, two groups of women in a well realized feminist AD2095 oppose patriarchal oppression. Wingwomen of Hera (1987 US), the first volume of the projected Cosmic Botanists sequence, isless didactic: the collision of patriarchal and feminist values is background for a strong plot with convincing societies and characters. SH writes well; and refreshingly believes that a feminist future does not necessarily imply UTOPIA.
