Short stories are good bite sized wisdom. I collect a lot of the annual best of collections and usually find them interested in sex.

I’m teaching a freethinkers class with Thoreau, Catcher in the Rye, and One Flew over the stallionoo’s Nest. I would like to find other short stories, specifically by women, because the class is already heavily male authored and male protagonist.

I am already thinking of The Yellow Wallpaper and Kate Chopin’s “The Story of an Hour.” Any other recommendations of free thinker short stories ? Or poetry?

I mostly just know SF and fantasy writers, but I'll give it a burl.

C.L. Moore's "Shambleu" and "Vintage Season", which are respectively about male rape and disaster tourism.
Ursula K. Le Guin, "The Ones Who Walk Away from Omelas" and "The Word for World Is Forest".
Shirly Jackson's "The Lottery".
Anne McCaffrey's "Weyr Search" and "Dragonrider".
Joanna Russ' "When It Changed".
C. J. Cherryh's "Cassandra".
Mary Shelley's "Mathilda".
Doris Lessing's "Through the Tunnel".

There's also Poppy Z. Brite and Andre Norton, but I'm not familiar enough with their oeuvre to make individual recommendations.

I would really recommend "Bloodchild" by Octavia Butler.

Seconding the person above recommending Le Guin as well.

"Lost in the Funhouse" by J Barth is phenomenal. It's a series of short stories that are all somehow tied together. The first story "Night-Sea Journey" is really powerful, would recommend at least popping that open.
