It'd probably be worth at least mentioning some of the really early proto-sci-fi, like Charlotte Perkins Gilman's Herland. (Though I'll admit I can't think of anything else early enough that's both feminist and sci-fi).
Otherwise, sounds very interesting! Do give us a few reviews of how it goes
(By the way, I haven't actually read Herland: The premise (that everything would be better if women were in control) is... one of the more annoying.) Still, if you're doing an academic study, covering the development is probably required, to some extent.
