Has anyone ever read a science fiction story about a society in which men and women are really treated equally? I have read some in which it _said_ that men and women are equal. But one detects subtle differences in treatment in the story suggesting inequality.
The Federation in Star Trek is one such society. Men and women are supposedly treated equally. But I detect subtle, and sometimes no so subtle, hints that notions of chivalry still persist and women are not treated truly equally. There are also differences in treatment unrelated to the notion of "protection of women". However, I also noticed that the later the series, the less of it one sees. That was good trend.
I would also like to hear about cases where it is said that the sexes are equal, but you detect indications that they are not. Or found situations which flat out contradict the claim.
