Bursting with baby fever, the career-woman trades her glamorous clothes and four-inch heels for the playground and potty training. As denned by Ellen Moers, the female gothic focuses on the distress, perils, and victimiza- tion of women who are under the con- trol of unscrupulous men. Women, who had been actively excluded from the study of hard sciences until the late twentieth century, have not historically been part of the technocratic elite, and the prejudice against soft sciences in SF reflects a lingering bias against scientific domains considered less objective and more feminine.
