Herland is a utopian novel written by feminist Charlotte Perkins
Gilman. The book describes an isolated society composed entirely of
women who reproduce via parthenogenesis. The result is an ideal
social order, free of war, conflict and domination. The story is
told from the perspective of Van Jennings, a student of sociology
who, along with two friends, Terry O. Nicholson and Jeff Margrave,
forms an expedition party to explore an area of unchartered land
where it is rumored lives a society consisting entirely of women.
The three friends do not really believe the rumors as they are
unable to conceive of how human reproduction could occur without
males. The men speculate about what a society of women would be
like, each guessing differently based on the stereotype of women
which he holds most dear. Wilder Publications is a green publisher.
