In his Specters of Marx, first published in France a year before South Africa’s first free elections, Jacques Derrida wrote that "the historic violence of Apartheid can always be treated as a metonymy. In its past as well as in its present. By diverse paths . . . one can always decipher through its singularity so many other kinds of violence going on in the world. At once part, cause, effect, example . . . what is happening there translates to what takes place here, always here, wherever one is and wherever one looks, closest to home."

The interconnection of speculative fiction, transgressions against social norms, gender studies, and global perspectives is compelling because speculative fiction allows for a unique approach to social critiques. The worlds that are created in science fiction, fantasy, horror, and dystopian futures allow the genre to explore new or imaginative societies, detached from existing or historical social structures. Such an environment of speculation has led many authors to utilize the genre to comment on women's concerns. Many of these works have, understandably been extensively critically examined.
