Annotation

The novel describes the results of a plague that mostly affects men but not women. One focus is on a group of women who organize a generally successful community based on the principle that everyone earned a right through labor to a share in what could be produced. After contact is made with parts of the world less affected by the plague, the outlines are given of a future eutopia based on greater gender equality.
