"There were still battles to fight . . . [Jeanne] Gomoll spent some time highlighting the achievements of the 1970s, including the following: "From 1953 through 1967 there had not been one single woman to win a Hugo award for fiction. Between 1968 and 1984 there were eleven."

That record would continue, though equality was still some way away. From the seventies to date 26 percent of the Hugo awards in the fiction categories have gone to women writers, the greater proportion of those for novels and novellas. Interestingly enough, the proportion amongst the John W. Campbell Award for Best New Writer is almost evenly matched with 17 to women and 18 to men as of 2006."-Mike Ashley, History of the Science Fiction Magazine, 1970 to 1980.
