In the real world, women are beginning to dominate higher education and white collar jobs, while dangerous and labor-heavy jobs have almost always been the domain of men. What would it be like if this trend was pushed to the extreme? That’s what happens in the ugly future in this story. Men do all the hard and dangerous work that keeps the economy moving, while a select few of the most gifted women rule society and lead ostentatious lives of privilege. Other women are left to breed.
