The Gate to Women's Country Summary

The Gate to Women's Country by Sheri S. Tepper

THE GATE TO WOMEN'S COUNTRY tells of a society that exists three hundred years after our own has nearly destroyed itself. Now, male warriors are separated from women at an early age and live in garrisons plotting futilely for the battles which must never be fought again. Inside the women's towns, education, arts and science flourish. But for some like Stavia, there is more to see. Her sojourn with the man she is forbidden to love brings into sharp focus the contradictions that define their lives.

And when tragedy strikes, Stavia is faced with a decision she never thought she would make - a decision that could for ever change their world ...

THE GATE TO WOMEN'S COUNTRY is a novel that rivals Margaret Atwood's THE HANDMAID'S TALE in scope, impact, and the sheer power of its storytelling.
