1. There are comic books that take on some of these issues

The first issue of Bitch Planet by Kelly Sue Deconnick and Valentine De Landro had a very thoughtful essay at the end by Danielle Henderson ("The striking thing about Bitch Planet is that we're already on it. We don't have to get thrown on a shuttle to be judged non-compliant - be a little overweight, talk too loud, have an opinion on the internet - or be a woman of color.". Its only one issue in and I have some reservations about it - but it certainly made me think. It's set in a future in which woman who are not compliant or who are outside the norms are sent to another planet - basically it's a modern remash of the woman prison movie, taking that exploitive genre and giving it a sci-fi setting and an interesting sensibility.

Anyway I'm going to follow it for a few issues and see where it goes.
