  •  Glory Season by David Brin (0+ / 0-)

    Human reproduction is altered on a far-away colony world. Men and women are sexually receptive at different times of the year.

    Winter:
    Women are receptive. Women will conceive clones of themselves at this time. Men are docile.

    Summer:
    Men are receptive and can be violent. Women who conceive at this time will bear a normal mixture of male and female children. However, children conceived in this manner are looked down upon as vars.

    This produces a practical feminist society, dominated by clans of genetically identical, financially successful women. Men are confined to relatively few professions.
