    There were a lot of women writers working then who'd also been working earlier.  See people like Doris Lessing and Iris Murdoch.  

    But see also Margaret Drabble, Joyce Carol Oates, and Joan Didion for starters.  Erica Jong made rather a splash in the 70s, as did Rita Mae Brown.  

    I could name many more. The list of good women writers from that period is long.

    I liked Erica Jong, novelist and poet.  Sylvia Plath is intense.  Ursula K. Leguin is a great novelist.
