WisCon is the first and foremost feminist science fiction convention in the world. WisCon encourages discussion, debate and extrapolation of ideas relating to feminism, gender, race and class. WisCon honors writers, editors and artists whose work explores these themes and whose voices have opened new dimensions and territory in these issues. It is also where the James Tiptree, Jr. Award is announced "to honor and reward written Science Fiction and Fantasy that explores and expands gender." (James Tiptree, Jr. was the pen name for Alice B. Sheldon, an award winning speculative writer.)
