Abstract or Summary
  • Unpublished female authors of American short fiction face many prejudices in fiction publishing, submission, and reviewing. These prejudices stem from the writer’s position in a gender-unequal society. Feminist fiction provides dimensional, diverse female characters in relationships where previous fiction had offered only stereotypes whose role was to support and reflect leading male characters. Normalization of feminist fiction will increase diversity in writing and eliminate the negative effects of the remaining stereotypes, as they will no longer be normalized or internalized by readers. The short story, a form commonly agreed to be American in origin, is a feminist form because it encourages ‘othered’ individuals to share their stories, and as a result it can do political work for the propagation of feminist ideology through an accessible avenue.
