I am wondering what babble feminists and others think of the Millenium trilogy by the Swedish writer Stieg Larsson. I am currently reading book two (The Girl Who Played with Fire) and it is possibly the most agressively feminist novel I've ever read, except possibly Glasshouse by Charles Stross. Through the third person omniscient narrator we get lucid and detailed explanations/explorations of the way the characters either engage in sexism or deal with it in a manner that is unapologetic. The reason this is worth its own thread is that these murder mysteries are some of the most popular novels out right now. The three books are 9th, 16th, and 5th on Amazon, as such the language and ideas presented could easily percolate into the mainstream narrative on issues such as sexual harassment.
BTW, for those contemplating picking them up, they do very well as riveting detective novels. Aside from gender, Larsson also demonstrates his vision on issues such as capitalism, the state and the police, LGBT, naziism, and modern psychiatry. I'll probably see more when I get to the third book.
