(?   -?   ) UK (?) author whose Feminist assault upon celibacy and male domination, It Beats the Shakers; Or, a New Tune (1905), skirts sf in its somewhat abstract rendering of the arrival (at some moment in the deep past) of woman from Venus, on condition that men treat them properly; of their later departure from Earth when the drab truths dominating male behaviour become incontrovertible; and the final Disaster – the Last Man perishes in a vast landslide – that precedes a final Utopia where the reborn/returned two sexes are equal.
