Science fiction: a brief feminist perspective

I was reading - probably rereading - one of Heinlein's novels in my late teens/early 20's when I realised that while I always knew what the female characters were, or often were not, wearing, but not a clue about the male ones. Haven't been able to read Heinlein since.

Bujold, OTOH, is an equal opportunity commentator on fashion. I still reread Bujold.
