Women As Sex Class in Renaissance

I should really get to writing my paper (proposals are due soon) but in the meantime, as I contemplate the film I've decided to add to my resources for this piece, I want to mention that said film -- Renaissance -- while amazing for my piece on signs, meaning, narrative, and detective fiction, is ALSO an incredible demonstration of women's place as a sex class. It's just a normal sci-fi / neo-noir adventure flick, but look at the representation of women and also the way the film depicts a future world as being ridiculously sexist (all the bad elements of our own sexism are retained, no gains for women have been made in this futuristic world). Depressing but interesting to analyze.
