Feminist theory evolves around changing the ways in which politics, society, and people cooperate. Feminism emphasizes equality among all living beings, regardless of race, gender, ethnicity, and sexuality. It garners awareness, pushing walls constantly, giving up separations and categorizations of people and recognizing that the injustices that exist today have the possibility of not existing tomorrow. By examining three novels: Parable of the Sower by Octavia Butler, The Terrorists of Irustan by Louise Marley, and The Left Hand of Darkness by Ursula LeGuin, we see the socially constructed concept of gender, patriarchal power, trust as the path to survival and questions revolving around automation and technology.
