Utopian and dystopian writing used to be a male domain until the middle of the twentieth century since when a number of women novelists have contributed to the genre. The article examines the recent shift towards ecological dystopia in three turn-of-the-millennium novels: Maggie Gee's The Ice People (1998), Doris Lessing's The Story of General Dann and Mara's Daughter, Griot and the Snow Dog (2005) and Jeanette Winterson's The Stone Gods (2007).
