Best mind-blowing sf short fiction by women?

As some of you may have already heard, there's an anthology of "innovative[1] and mind-blowing" sf, and it happens to not include anything written by women.

The comment thread mentions authors who were left out, but the only specific story mentioned was Jackson's "The Lottery".

I nominate "The Snowball Effect" by Katherine MacLean.

And there's that mind-blastingly cynical story by Tiptree about the nice uninhabited planet that people of good will are given a key to. What's the title?

"Down the Wall" by Greer Gilman.

Any other nominees?

[1]"Innovative" doesn't seem to imply stylistic wildness.
