Gilman, Charlotte Perkins: Herland, v1.2, 20 Sept 2007.

Herland
by Charlotte Perkins Stetson Gilman
[1915]

A feminist Utopia. Three men blunder into a society of women.

From Sacred-texts.com’s notes:

Gilman's feminist novel, ‘Herland’ was one of a flood of utopian books at the turn of the 20th century where sex roles are inverted. Gilman imagined a society where women not only rule, but are the only gender. Reproducing by parthenogenesis, they worship a female deity. This particular book later became a must-read for the second-wave feminists, particularly the 'separatist' wing.

Edited to add:

A fun read, and very clean etext; only noted these errors:

and nose—an order of swimming sweetness
and nose—an odor of swimming sweetness

two or three kinds, "that that"
two or three kinds, "and that"

It's likely women— just a pack of women—would have hung together like that!

seeing me founder

every so many
ever so many

Thank you for the corrections, Anais9000. They have been included in the newly updated version.

Please would some kind moderator retitle this thread as v1.2 ?
Also the parallel thread in the mobi uploads section.
Thanks.
